Released by the Longview PD:

LONGVIEW, TX - On April 7, 2010 Longview Officers received information that known, wanted person David Grantham was at 123 Vesta Street. Grantham had outstanding warrants for evading arrest with a vehicle and a parole violation warrant from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

Officers went to the location at around 6:54 p.m. and located several subjects in the backyard of the location, to include Rainey Schitoskey and Johnny Sullivan. Officers questioned Schitoskey and Sullivan about Grantham's whereabouts, but they denied knowing where he was. As officers searched the backyard, Grantham was found hiding in a storage shed adjacent to where Schitoskey and Sullivan were standing.

Grantham refused to cooperate with officers and fought with them as they tried to place Grantham into handcuffs. Grantham was subdued with a Taser and was subsequently arrested without any serious injury to Grantham or the officers.

Rainey Schitoskey and Johnny Sullivan were also arrested for hindering apprehension, a 3rd degree felony. Grantham, Schitoskey and Sullivan were all booked into the Gregg County Jail.
