On 07-01-16 at 12:08 a.m., officers from the Janesville Police Department began conducting surveillance of a residence in the 200 block of E. Racine St. The officers were looking for Royal Powell, who had a warrant out of the Department of Corrections (DOC). Powell also had pending charges that stemmed from another recent incident.

At 1:15 a.m. a vehicle left the residence and Powell was suspected to be inside that vehicle. A traffic stop was conducted on the vehicle at Lions Quik Mart, 104 E.

A JPD K9 alerted on the vehicle, which allowed a search of the vehicle. Once the officers opened the trunk of the vehicle, they found Powell inside. The officers were able to handcuff Powell while he was still in the trunk. Once Powell was removed from the trunk he began threatening officers and refused to get into a squad car. Powell had to be pulled into the squad by officers. While in the squad, Powell kicked the windows and an officer.
