CAPE CORAL, Fla.- A man who fought with officers outside of a pool hall has taken a plea deal.

In court Wednesday, 21-year-old Travis Robey pled guilty to resisting an officer with violence, a felony of the 3rd degree.

He was sentenced to 24 months probation, paying court costs, and 100 hours of community service.

Robey was arrested on June 29, 2014 outside of BA Hustler’s after officers responded to a call of a suspicious person yelling and hitting a car in the parking lot. When officers made contact with Robey at his truck, they saw cannabis in plain view and began a narcotics investigation.

Police say Robey quickly became verbally and physically resistant towards officers and attempted to run away.

Officers gave chase into a nearby vacant field and attempted to take Robey into custody.

Robey continued to resist despite repeated verbal orders. According to police, the resistance escalated and Robey began striking officers with fists.

Officials say he was finally subdued with a baton as multiple officers got him into handcuffs.
