Lowry City man charged with felony resisting arrest

Rocky Willis
On Aug. 1, Rocky Willis, 38, Lowry City, was arrested on a St. Clair County warrant charging him with class D felony resisting arrest/detention/stop by fleeing-creating a substantial risk of serious injury/death to any person. Bond is set at $7,500 cash/surety.

The charges stem from an incident on June 26 when a St. Clair County deputy conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle Willis was a passenger in. Willis bailed from the vehicle and was ordered to stop. He refused and kept running. The driver and another passenger in the vehicle stated that Willis knew he had active felony warrants.

The warrant was served to Willis at the St. Clair County Jail where he has been in custody since July 10 on two St. Clair County warrants and one Dallas County warrant. 

The St. Clair County warrants charge Willis with a probation violation on an original class C felony charge of possession of a controlled substance and two class A misdemeanor counts of passing a bad check. Total bond on the St. Clair County warrant is $5,900 cash only. 

The Dallas County warrant is a no bond warrant charging Willis with probation violation on an original class D felony of no valid license third or subsequent offense.
