Ocean View Police spotted a man pushing a bicycle just after 11:30pm on Atlantic Avenue. When police stopped to check on him they found he seemed very intoxicated. A computer check showed that 51 year old Sonny Floyd was wanted by authorities in Oregon and Georgia on drug and alcohol related charges and that he had a history of resisting arrest and violent tendencies. When officers tried to arrest Floyd, he resisted, but were able to restrain him. His blood alcohol level was over the legal limit. He was treated for scrapes to his face which occurred while he was resisting arrest – and then taken to SCI where he’s being held in default of $2100 cash bond. Oregon officials have started the extradition process.
