FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Date: 12/25/17

Incident: 5150 W&I Resisting Officers

Location of Incident: 1400 Powell St Chevron gas station

Date/Time Occurred: 12/25/17

Incident Case Number: 1712-2131

Charges: 148(d) and 69 PC

Narrative: Officers responded to the Chevron gas station located at 1400 Powell Street, for a subject creating a disturbance and disrupting the business. Upon the officer’s arrival, they contacted a subject, who appeared to be delusional. Officers believed the subject was a danger to himself and others. When the officers attempted to detain the subject for a medical evaluation, he became irate and uncooperative.

One officer was able to grab the subject before he ran into the street and into traffic. The subject resisted the officer’s attempt to secure him and took the officer to the ground. While on the ground the subject continued to resist and wrestled his way on top of the officer. During the struggle, the subject attempted to grab the officers hand gun from the holster. A second officer assisted in gaining control of the subject and secured him without further incident.

Neither the subject or the officers sustained any injuries during this incident. The subject was transported to the hospital for evaluation.
