" Deputy Dies After Struggling With Motorist."

  Collier County Sheriff's Deputy Maurice Eugene Anglin, 49, of 1 Cimmaron Trail, Hitching Post Trailer Park, died Saturday night following a struggle with an Orlando man arrested on a charge of drunk driving.
  The motorist, Ralph Stanley, 22, of Orlando, is being held in the Collier County jail, without bond, on charges of driving while intoxicated, resisting arrest with violence, failing to control his vehicle, improper lights and driving with an improper driver's license.
  Sheriff  E. A. Doug Hendry said Anglin was dead on arrival at the Naples Community Hospital after he collapsed on SR951 about one mile West of Goodland Saturday night.
  According to reports, Anglin was dispatched to an accident scene there and attempted to arrest Stanley. Witnesses said Stanley resisted arrest and punched and kicked the deputy. Several spectators went to the deputy's assistance and helped the deputy place Stanley in the squad car.
