MUHLENBERG TWP., Pa. - A Berks County man's run from the law has come to an end, but he didn't go quietly.
Muhlenberg Township police caught up with Carlos Juan Serrano Jr. early Sunday morning while investigating the report of speeding car on a shopping center parking lot on the Fifth Street Highway.
Officers found the car crashed behind the former Kmart store and Serrano with airbag dust on his shirt and a strong smell of alcohol on his body, according to the affidavit of probable cause.
As officers attempted to arrest Serrano, he told them, 'Y'all ain't taking me anywhere," and pushed past them as if trying to get away, according to the court paperwork.
Police said Serrano continued to disobey their commands and resist arrest, punching one of the officers in the eye before the suspect could be secured.
Further investigation revealed that Serrano was wanted for arrest on a felony warrant and that he had a suspended driver's license and numerous scofflaw tickets, according to court documents.
Serrano, 25, of Laureldale, was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, DUI, public drunkenness, and possession of marijuana. He was committed to the Berks County Jail on $25,000 bail.
