LANDERS MAN ACCUSED OF BITING A SHERIFF’S DEPUTY

A Landers man was arrested early Monday morning after he bit a deputy. Deputies were called to the 100 block of Anita Avenue in Landers about 3 a.m. for a 911 call. During a security sweep of the home, deputies learned that Adam Strickland, 53, had been arguing with his son. Deputies say that Strickland refused to listen to deputies, tried to push past them to get to a bedroom, and then took a fighting stance toward deputies. Deputies took Strickland to the ground, and while they were trying to get control of Strickland’s hands, he bit one of them. Adam Strickland was arrested for investigation of resisting an executive officer, booked into the Morongo Basin Jail, with his bail set at $50,000.
