All of the arrests included violations such as Possession of a Controlled Substance, Sales of a Controlled Substance, Drug Trafficking, Domestic Battery, Battery on a Peace Officer, Resisting & Obstruction of a Peace Officer, Warrant Arrests, Parole and Probation Violations, Traffic Violations, and Civil Protective Custody.
