Melbourne, FL (July 25, 2019) – A disturbance took place on Saturday that led to domestic battery, battery of a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, and other charges in Melbourne.
The man allegedly also yelled, “Come on white crackers, bring it,” before he struck an officer in the arm with a wooden chair. The man has since been identified as 36-year-old Travius Roberts.
Melbourne Police were called to the home at 500 Williams Street where they found that a woman told deputies that Roberts had taken a bag out of her hands and choked her until she passed out.
After yelling threats at police, Roberts told them that they would have to use stun guns and other weapons to take him into custody. He said that he also had guns and would crack their skulls if they came after him.
Roberts threw a chair at one of the officers, striking him in the forearm and causing an abrasion.
Roberts was since arrested on Monday at 11:40 p.m.
