Police Have Hands Full In Spring Valley

Posted by wlpo on June 30, 2009

Some tense moments yesterday at a home in Spring Valley.

William Simpson was arrested for aggravated assault and resisting a peace officer after putting up a struggle with Spring Valley Police.

Problems started when a person called police to say Simpson was approaching his house, yelling in the street and pointing what he thought was a gun in the air. Simpson eventually walked back to his house on East Iowa Street.

When police arrived, they say Simpson wouldn’t come outside and began yelling thru his windows. When he finally came outside, he allegedly put up a fight.

Besides aggravated assault and resisting a peace officer, Simpson is also charged with possession of ammunition without a FOID card. The ammo was found in his house.
