BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Jesus Regueiro of Pembroke Pines allegedly flailed and struggled with police as they tried to arrest him in an early morning takedown that started with surveillance in Royal Palm Yacht Club. Officers tased Regueiro before he complied with their commands.
Details of the Wednesday morning arrest are just now available through an arrest report released early Thursday.
Regueiro, according to the report, was acting in a “suspicious” manner according to a Royal Palm Yacht Club security officer who alerted Boca PD already in the community. A Boca PD officer followed Regueiro as he left Royal Palm Yacht and headed north on South Federal Highway.
“I covertly followed behind the vehicle and I observed as the vehicle failed to correctly stop behind the stop bar at the intersection of South Federal Highway and Southeast Mizner Blvd.,” wrote an officer. “I continued to follow behind the vehicle until other Tac Team Officers took over mobile surveillance.”
Those officers eventually stopped Regueiro, who, according the report, was combative. It’s possible this is the reason why: Regueiro was wanted on “multiple felony warrants out of Broward County for armed burglary to a dwelling, grand theft of a firearm, and burglary to an unoccupied dwelling,” according to the report reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com.
“I asked Regueiro multiple times to exit his vehicle,” wrote an officer, “but he did not listen to my instructions. (Another officer and I) escorted him out of the car, and we brought him over to the trunk area where I attempted to detain him by placing him in handcuffs. I was able to get the left handcuff on, however Regueiro then pulled away from us while he had one handcuff on. (Three other officers) and I struggled with Regueiro while we attempted to take him into custody. Regueiro then grabbed (another officer’s) arm at one point and continued to flail who hands while his left hand has handcuffed using the handcuff as a weapon. Regueiro continued to resist arrest and he then grabbed (an officer’s) legs during which time distractionary strikes were administered however they were ineffective. I then tased Regueiro on his upper back and then proceeded to dry stun him on his lower back at which time I gained compliance.”
Regueiro is charged with two counts of Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, resisting with violence and violation of probation.
