Man Fights Hood County Sheriff’s Office Deputies

Hood County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a disturbance at a local convenience store. Deputies discovered that Nathaniel Ray Sanders, thirty-two years old, had an argument with the store clerk and appeared to be intoxicated. Deputies found  Sanders outside the store and during questioning, Sanders ran from Deputies. After a short foot pursuit, a scuffle ensued and Sanders punched one of the Deputies in the face and grabbed his Pepper Ball pistol and tried to fire it at Deputies, before it was secured by Deputies. Sanders was eventually handcuffed and placed under arrest. One Deputy has a broken nose and broken hand, and was treated and was released later.
