 Battery on Peace Officer (Prohibition Order Issued)

El Cerrito Plaza - 1504-5210

An officer responded to the station regarding a disturbance between the food vendor and a male subject. On arrival, the officer learned the subject had committed a petty theft and detained him. During the detention the officer attempted to place the subject in handcuffs but he physically resisted by grabbing the officer’s shirt - and a struggle ensued. At one point during the struggle, the subject managed to break free from the officer’s grasp but continued to exhibit aggressive behavior(s) toward the officer. The officer then deployed his Taser, ordered the subject to surrender, and he complied without further incident. The subject was arrested for battering the officer and resisting arrest; and a sergeant responded to approve the arrest and perform the use of force investigation. A wants/warrants check of the subject revealed he was on active probation for narcotics and auto theft violations, but was “clear” otherwise. The subject was issued a prohibition order before being booked into the county jail for battery on a peace officer, resisting arrest and probation violation; the vendor did not wish to pursue a criminal complaint against the subject. The officer suffered a minor injury, but did not require medical attention at the scene. The subject was not injured.
