On February 12, 2023, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office responded to NC Hwy 42 S, Asheboro, in reference to citizen assist. Upon arrival, Jeremy Alberto Suriel exited the business and approached the deputy advising he needed assistance with his vehicle and needed it towed. The deputy advised Suriel he needed to call a tow company and have them respond. Suriel’s behavior dramatically changed and began causing a scene in front of the business. A tow truck arrived but the driver refused Suriel as passenger due to his conduct. Suriel approached his vehicle and obtained a taser, activated it and placed it on the roof of the vehicle. At that time, the deputy placed him under arrest for the disorderly conduct. Suriel refused to walk and was assisted to the patrol vehicle. Additional deputies responded to assist. While still investigating, Suriel spit on a deputy. He transported to the Randolph County Detention Center. Upon arrival there, Suriel spit on a detention officer. He was taken before the magistrate who found probable cause for charges of two counts of felony malicious conduct by prisoner, misdemeanor disorderly conduct and misdemeanor resisting a public officer. He was issued $95,000 total secured bond and was also held in contempt of court by the magistrate and given an imprisonment term of forty-eight hours. A first appearance was set for February 13, 2023, in Randolph County District Court.
