October 6, 2020 – Santa Barbara County, Ca.
Once again supporting the notion that young men should heed the advice of their fathers, uncles, and grandfathers—who have learned so many of life’s great lessons the hard way themselves—and do whatever it takes to remain in control of their emotions and avoid romantic entanglements that are problematic, 25-year-old Santa Barbara resident Wesley Robert Williams now sits behind bars on a no-bail hold faced with multiple felony counts flowing from his inability to stay away from a certain female.

According to Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department Public Information Officer Raquel Zick, it all started on the evening of October 5th when SBSD Deputies responded to a call for service reporting “a suspicious subject who was known to the reporting party.” Enroute to the scene, deputies learned that the individual identified on the phone call—Williams—had an outstanding warrant for his arrest pursuant to “a violation of probation.”

Alerted thusly, deputies arrived on the scene and made contact with Williams as he sat in his car. Upon questioning, “Williams was evasive with deputies,” turned his car ignition to the “off” position, and then promptly “turned it back on and sped away from the scene.”

Within moments, a high-speed chase ensued along U.S. 101. Williams exited the freeway and headed into downtown Santa Barbara, where his car was brought to a halt and he was taken into custody.

He was then transported to Santa Barbara County Jail, where he was booked on his outstanding warrant as well as on charges of evading arrest, stalking, resisting arrest, domestic violence, and terrorist threats. He remains in custody on a no-bail hold.
