A 21-year-old Napa man was arrested Monday afternoon on suspicion of battery, battery on a police officer, resisting arrest and violating probation, according to an arrest summary from the City of Napa Police Department:
Officers responded to a physical fight at a residence in the 1900 block of Laurel St.
Upon arrival, Officers witnessed David Molina (05/05/1991 of Napa) punch a family member in the face, resulting in minor injury that did not require immediate medical attention.
Officers gave commands for Molina to get on the ground, which he responded to by slapping an Officer’s hand.
Molina discontinued his aggressive behavior when warned that officers would use that force necessary to take him into custody.
Molina was arrested and handcuffed. Molina later shoulder checked an Officer as he was being seated in the patrol car.
Molina was transported and booked at Napa County Department of Corrections.
Arrest information does not indicate a conviction.
Molina was previously arrested by Napa police in August, along with his girlfriend, on suspicion of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, preventing a call to police by interrupting a phone line, dissuading a witness, terrorist threats and conspiracy, with Molina facing an additional charge of violating probation, police said.
Those charges stemmed from a neighbor's complaint that the couple had beaten, robbed and threateded him.
Molina was also arrested in early 2011 for violating the terms of his probation for an earlier conviction.
