A Dunnellon man jailed in February for possession of drug equipment was arrested again Wednesday night after he reportedly put up a fight while being removed from his vehicle during a traffic stop in Ocala.
Jacob Matthew Schubert, 20, of 7204 SW 152nd Place, was charged with resisting an officer without violence.
At around 8:23 p.m., a pair of Marion County sheriff’s deputies observed a silver two-door Chevy Cavalier traveling west on Marion Oaks Manor at around 45 mph in a 35-mph zone. The deputies pulled Schubert over in the 500 block of Marion Oaks Manor. A K-9 deputy responded to the location and conducted a free-air sniff with K-9 “Drago,” who gave a positive alert to the presence of contraband in the vehicle, according to the sheriff’s office report.
The deputies ordered Schubert to step out of the vehicle so it could be searched due to the positive K-9 alert. Schubert refused and said he was not going to get out. After refusing several commands to exit the vehicle, Schubert was forcibly removed by deputies and placed in handcuffs, the report said.
Schubert was taken to the Marion County Jail, where he was released Saturday on $1,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Marion County Court on Aug. 25. No drug charges were filed.
