Man accused of attacking police officers during drug arrest

Posted by wlpo on April 13, 2012

Some drug busts go down without a hitch others turn into a struggle.  It was the latter after La Salle Police Officers and members of TRIDENT went to a home on Third Street Thursday night.

Police say Darryl Stuggis began punching and kicking a La Salle Police Detective and several TRIDENT agents while being arrested on marijuana and crack-cocaine selling charges.

Earlier in the day police arrested Stuggis’ roommate Darrylena Merritte for drug dealing charges.

Stuggis was also arrested for four felony counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer.  Both were taken to the county jail.
