Man to trial for fighting cops, vomiting pot
January 09, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Travell Council

The man who prosecutors say vomited up a bag of marijuana in the county jail after his Christmas Eve arrest for fighting and evading San Mateo police searching his friend’s car will stand trial on several charges.

Travell Council, 20, of San Francisco, has pleaded not guilty to felony counts of assaulting a police officer, resisting an officer during an arrest and bringing narcotics into the jail and misdemeanor counts of possessing burglary tools and presenting false identification to an officer. However, after a preliminary hearing, a judge held him to answer on all charges and ordered him back Jan. 23 to potentially set a trial date.

Officers arrested Council Dec. 24 after pulling over the car in which he was a passenger. The driver initially fled police which allowed them to search the vehicle as he was on parole. During the search, Council allegedly jumped into the driver’s seat, started the ignition and punched at the officer trying to grab him. Another ultimately shot Council with a stun gun to no effect and he fled but was discovered with the help of a K-9 about an hour later on a nearby roof.

While being booked into custody at Maguire Correctional Facility, Council reportedly regurgitated a bag of marijuana he swallowed. He remains in custody in lieu of $50,000 bail.
