Trooper Assault Suspect Due In Court

A man who authorities say assaulted a female state trooper on Thanksgiving Day is due in court Monday.

The Highway Patrol says Robert Stocks got into a fist fight with Trooper Amanda Sings as she was trying to arrest him Thanksgiving afternoon in Pitt County.

Stocks remains in jail on $200,500 bond for assault on a law enforcement officer, assault with intent to inflict injuries, resisting arrest and driving while impaired.

The assault happened on Joe Stocks Road, which is south of Greenville off Highway 43.

Sgt. Gary Weaver says Trooper Amanda Signs was trying to arrest Stocks when both were injured. He said it was a fist fight and no weapons were used.

  • by No_1 Location: NC on Apr 12, 2010 at 07:53 PM first time seeing this. LOL. If you see this guy, just don't mess with him. Don't taunt him. He wasn't drunk. He snaps and loses control when he feels threatened, though it's not an excuse. You just never know how someone's gonna react. The poor cop didn't know who she was messing with. Glad she's ok. Oh, and girls can't fight like men, especially men. His messed up face is the product of an impromptu gang-up on one person...

    To all the haters telling me that I'm no match for a man: Be assured that I am MORE THAN A MATCH for any guy when it comes to a fist-fight. I grew up roughhousing with four brothers and held my own. I am trained in ju-jitsu and karate and have taken a street-fighting course. I KNOW MY STUFF when it comes to fighting and I FEAR NO MAN. I can't wait to come of age and apply to the NC HIGHWAY PATROL. There is a need for STRONG WOMEN out there to ENFORCE THE LAW WITH AUTHORITY, and I intend to get my licks in. No male will beat me down! I say it again: WAY TO GO, AMANDA-BABY! YOU GO, GIRL! That showed him!

    To everyone commenting on what the other troopers did to poor ole Bobby when they got there,let me say this he got what he deserved!Also the laceration you see on his left side that runs from front to back was caused by the 2x4 that he got hit with from the good samaritan that stopped and helped her.

    I kinda agree with anonymous posted at 7:01pm. I was coming through this area when this happened and yes he knocked the female trooper out. Not only was there about 9 troopers there but this female trooper husbabd arrived on the scene in his Greenville Police Department vehicle outside the city limits. I am pretty sure he got some shots in too lol. Now with that said the gentleman probably got what he deserved and trust me this mug shoot was put up for a reason. Do not mess with a state trooper. Excessive yes but will this guy attorney care, only if he is a paid attorney.

    this is not the first time BOBBY STOCKS has done something like this and been in jail...except the last time was when he threw his girlfriend off a balcony...and from seeing Bobby fight before...he is a pretty good boxer so this trooper laid down the law on him from the looks of it...

    I'm sure that the marks on his face were because of him being clumsy and falling on his way to the backseat of the HP car.May have even bumped his head getting in.......LOL

    Looks like he got the worst part of that fight. Good enough for the little punk!

    Unless things have changed there is and always have been a couple of things that were certain to get your white a** beat when dealing with the law. 1) Running from the LEO and getting caught; either on foot or in a car. 2) Resisting or starting a fight with a LEO. You can be certain that no one would march on your behalf or feel sorry for the treatment that your actions caused. Only people of color get other treatment. If you are white and you don't know these two facts you will have a rude awakening upon getting caught.
