Richmond police arrested a man for disregarding a traffic control device (traffic light), reckless driving, resisting arrest, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment (police officer), two counts of third-degree assault (police or probation officer) and first-degree fleeing police (motor vehicle) after an officer witnessed him drive through a red light at Boggs Lane and Big Hill Avenue Thursday evening.

Jones refused to answer questions about if he was injured or needed medical treatment, the citation states. As officers tried to place him in a police car, he kicked at them and continued to ignore commands.
