Two Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police officers were treated for injuries Saturday after a violent confrontation with a suspect they were attempting to question.

The suspect was also treated for injuries.

Angar Derium Williams, 36, of the 1900 block of Cimarron Street was charged with multiple crimes, including obstruction of a law enforcement officer, possession of marijuana, driving with a suspended license, obstruction of an officer with injury, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, removal of a firearm from a public official and parole violation.

He fought with three police officers in a neighborhood off Ogeechee Road at approximately 5:30 a.m. Saturday.

Two West Chatham Precinct patrol officers responded to complaints of suspicious vehicles near Pate Street. While the officers were questioning the occupants of one car, they encountered Williams in a second car.

Williams smelled of marijuana, and when he was unable to produce a driver's license and asked to exit the vehicle, a struggle began.

Williams was subdued when other Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police officers responded. The two injured officers, along with Williams, were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment of minor injuries.

Williams was sentenced to seven years in prison for possession of cocaine in December 2010 and was paroled in February 2013.

His record includes at least nine previous arrests for drug possession and/or sales of drugs, 13 probation or parole violations and six previous obstruction charges, including one in which another officer was injured.
