Felon Arrested for Possession of Stolen Vehicle and Battery on Police Officers

Larkspur, CA – February 19, 2023 – The Central Marin Police Authority received a call for service at approximately 10:00 a.m. from the Shell gas station, 295 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Greenbrae, reporting a man in the driver’s seat of a parked vehicle slamming his head against the steering wheel. The reporting parties believed the subject in the driver’s seat was possibly under the influence of narcotics and/or alcohol.

Central Marin Police Officers arrived and contacted the subject in the driver’s seat a silver BMW station wagon with no license plates. A California Highway Patrol (CHP) Officer also arrived on scene. As the officers were evaluating the driver of the vehicle for being under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, the subject attempted to start the vehicle against the officer’s orders. Due to the subject continuing to start the vehicle, his refusal to exit the vehicle, and his objective systems of being under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, officers attempted to physically remove him from the driver’s seat. The subject immediately resisted and fought the officers attempt to remove him from the vehicle to prevent his flight. His combative behavior caused minor injuries to two CMPA officers and one CHP officer. Once out of the vehicle, he was arrested without further incident.

Through the investigation the vehicle was discovered to be a reported stolen vehicle from the Town of Fairfax. The suspect was identified as a 45-year-old resident of Oakland, CA. The suspect admitted to recently ingesting heroin prior to contact with law enforcement. The suspect was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle, a repeat offender enhancement for prior felony convictions for possession of stolen vehicles, battery on police officers, resisting arrest, and public intoxication.
