Prior to arrival dispatch advised that two juvenile boys, later identified as Antonio and Jose, were at the Dollar Tree store advising that they ran away from their residence. Upon arrival it was learned that the boys, the defendants, were punished for not cleaning their bedrooms by their mother.

The boys became enraged when Deputies would not place them in foster care. Antonio, stated that he had previously "kicked the sh*t" out of a police officer and would harm Deputies if he was to be returned to his mother. When asked why Antonio made that comment he stated that he would kick Deputies in the crotch area, "balls", and punch Deputies in the face, as he began hitting his open hand with a closed fist. Antonio stated that he was not afraid to fight Deputies as he has previously "jumped cops" in the past.

Jose, the defendant and brother to Antonio, then removed a yellow box cutter razor knife from a nearby table, and proceeded to open it and point it at Deputies which caused a well-founded fear of being injured to the Deputies. Jose was in close proximately to Deputies as the room was small.

Jose refused to comply with verbal commands to put the razor down, to which he replied with laughter. The knife was ultimately removed from Jose's hand, at which time Jose was restrained with handcuff's behind his back. Jose stated that if he was to be returned to his mother he would run away and cause "problems" for his mother. Contact was then made with Jose's mother at the scene who was made aware of the situation.

Jose was then placed under arrest and transported to the Hernando County Jail. He was not issued a bond or a court date due to him being a juvenile.

The Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) was notified and advised that Jose was to be released to his parents and placed on home detention."

The defendant actively resisted by pulling away from Affiant as Affiant was physically holding the defendant's arms in order to place him into handcuffs. The defendant was told several times he was under arrest and he ran southbound and jumped a five foot wire fence. The defendant ran southbound through two wooded properties and circled back through the wooded area in an attempt to make entry into his residence. Affiant gave chase on foot throughout the entire time. The defendant circled back to his property, climbing over several five foot fences, to the rear of his residence. The defendant continued to run and continued to the southwest end of his property. At this time, Affiant caught up with the defendant and advised him he would be tazed and to stop and get on the ground.
