According to sheriff’s department reports, an unknown female had called 911 advising dispatchers that her boyfriend, Mitchell Williams, had called her to get help after having been bitten by a snake in the woods near their residence of 345 Synder Kirkley Road of Pageland. Williams had allegedly told the caller that he was beginning to feel weak and disoriented.
After arriving on the scene, deputies and First Health EMT’s began to comb the surrounding woods searching for Williams. After not being able to find him initially, emergency personnel returned to the residence where the girlfriend had informed them of another area to look just up the road from the property. Again Williams was not located. At this point deputy Livergood attempted to reach Williams on his cell phone.
Williams answered and after a brief conversation with Livergood it was determined that Williams was not in the condition earlier believed. He became verbally aggressive with Livergood threatening physical violence. When deputies located the suspect he was on a tree stump in the woods behind the residence consuming alcohol. After being confronted by deputies, Williams began to resist arrest and was subsequently tased three times before becoming compliant. EMT’s examined Williams before he was taken into custody and transported to Chesterfield County jail.
