COLLEGE STATION, TX — On Jan 25., around 6:04 P.M., local College Station police responded to a report of disorderly conduct, over at the Walmart on 1815 Brothers Blvd.

Later identified as William Leonard Breckenridge, police were informed Breckenridge, " was cursing, and starting to pick fights with people in the store", according to the probable cause statement.

Witnesses say, Breckenridge had attempted to fight multiple people, prior, to officers arriving.

While attempting to exit himself though, local witnesses report Breckenridge, "threw a trash can at a vehicle full of people.", as well also.

In their efforts to arrest Breckenridge, officers say they could smell alcohol coming from him, and noticed his slurred speech when talking.

Putting up resistance, Breckenridge kicked an officer in their chest, and later grabbed their vest, refusing to let go of it, as the officer attempted to handcuff him.

The officer responded by pulling out their department-issued Taser X-26, telling Breckenridge, to lie down or he would be tased.

Laying down, but still refusing to let go, the officer got on top of Breckenridge until another CS officer arrived.
From there, Breckenridge was successfully handcuffed.

Breckenridge is currently facing four charges, one for public intoxication, and the others for evading arrest, assaulting a public servant, and for making an offensive gesture by throwing a punch at another customer.
