Street food and shopping got a bit out of hand at Thursday's on First Street last night. It started about 5:30 p.m., when tried to take a young woman into custody.
The officer contacted Kelsey Lyn Patterson, 20, of Napa, near the Coombs St Plaza and took her into custody for an outstanding felony arrest warrant for a prior drug violation charge. (Patterson had just been listed on the Napa Crime Watch list; )
During the arrest, however, Douglas Joseph Herich, 54, of Napa, approached the officer and attempted to interfere. Herich displayed objective signs of intoxication and refused orders from the officers not to interfere. When he refused, he too was detained.
Herich called for members of the gathering crowd to set him free. Sean Michael Horne, 25, of Napa, came out from the crowd and approached the arresting officer in an aggressive manner, attempting to interfere with the detention of Herich.
Additional NPD cover officers arrived on the scene as Horne continued to attempt to interfere with the detention of Herich. As they arrived Horne attempted to flee back into the crowd but was detained by NPD Officers. Horne was determined to be intoxicated and in violation of his probation terms.
All three suspects -- Patterson, Herich and Horne -- were booked into Napa County Detention Center.
In an unrelated incident a little over an hour later, at 6:45, Francesco Cosimo Commisso, 21, of Napa was contacted by downtown Napa Police foot patrol officers in the area of First and Franklin streets, some blocks away from the popular Thursday night street market. Commisso was confirmed to have two felony warrants for his arrest and he was taken into custody and booked into NCDC.
