COLLEGE STATION A Madisonville man is in jail after police say he stole a car and crashed in into a convenience store Saturday night.

39-year-old Obryan David Roark, Jr. was arrested for Robbery and Driving While Intoxicated. Police were called to the A&M Expressway Exxon store around 6 o'clock Satruday morning. According to the arrest report, Roark was found inside the store, behaving jittery with blood all over his face. Officers and first responders tried to get him into an ambulance, but Roark refused. He repeatedly kept saying "If somebody said I had mechanical injuries-somebody may say that-but I'm not going. I'm just saying that I didn't do what somebody's saying I'm doing" and, "I don't know what I'm thinking."

Based on his behavior, officers felt the need to restrain him for his own safety. According to the arrest report, firefighters tried to move him to the ambulance, but Roark just tensed his body and pushed against the door. Officers were able to get him on the sidewalk outside, where he resisted even more. Officers told Roark if he didn't comply, they would tase him. He responded, "F*** that taser, B***" Officers tased him twice before getting handcuffs on him.

While in the handcuffs, Roark tried to get up and would bite at the officer's legs. He also tried to spit blood onto one officer's face. First responders were forced to "chemically restrain" him. According to the arrest report, once officers got Roark back to the College Station Medical Center, medical staff recognized him as a previous patient brought in for a wellfare concern. A College Station police officer was hit in the face causing a nose bleed and punched leaving red marks and abrasions under his right eye.

Roark was arrested and charged with Robbery and Driving While Intoxicated. He is in the Brazos County Jail under $12,000 bond.
