City Council member Jumaane Williams would rather fight than plead.

The Brooklyn politician rejected a deal Tuesday to dodge obstruction charges linked to the Jan. 11 incarceration of immigration activist Ravi Ragbir in lower Manhattan.

Williams instead faces his own May 8 court appearance stemming from his arrest for trying to keep Ragbir out of federal custody during what started as a routine check-in.
