A 14-year-old Napa gang member was arrested Thursday at about 10:10 p.m. on suspicion of resisting arrest, prowling, being drunk in public and violating juvenile probation, according to an arrest summary from the City of Napa Police Department:
A Vallejo Police Department K-9 officer was driving home from work, in a marked Vallejo Police Department patrol car, in the area of Broadmoor Dr. and Partrick Dr.
At this time he saw a subject hide in some bushes behind a fence. NPD officers arrived on scene and located the subject wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt (hood on) hiding in the dark within some bushes behind a small fence in the yard of a residence in the 1000 block of Broadmoor Dr.
The subject was given numerous commands to show his hands and he did not comply or respond, which resulted in the officers taking the subject to ground.
While on the ground, the subject kept his hands tightly under his body. The officers gave several commands for the subject to put his hands out to the side, but he continued not to comply or respond.
A Taser was deployed that resulted in the subject removing his hand from under his body, which allowed officers to handcuff him and take him into custody.
Once the subject was removed from the bushes, officers recognized him as a 14 year old male juvenile who is a documented gang member. This subject was also intoxicated and found to be on juvenile probation.
Officers also learned that the juvenile was just released from juvenile hall earlier in the day. The juvenile was taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Center for a complaint of pain. He was treated, released and transported to juvenile hall where he was booked.
Earlier Thursday, at about 6:50 p.m., Napa police arrested another Napa teen on suspicion of burglary, according to an arrest summary:
A Napa Police Officer was assisting a Napa Sheriff’s Deputy at Val’s Liquor on Soscol Ave. with a stolen vehicle investigation.
At this same time a 15 year old male juvenile took a $400 smoking device from the smoke shop next door (Mighty Quinn) and ran from the store.
Officers were alerted to this and caught the juvenile as he attempted to jump over a fence. The juvenile was taken into custody and booked at juvenile hall.
