Deputies arrested 30-year-old Renee Chan and charged him for assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer. Chan is currently on county probation per Assembly Bill 109 and had an active no-bail probation revocation arrest warrant at the time of this incident.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of an unknown trouble at a residence on the 8700-block of Tyler Street. While the first arriving deputy was approaching the residence on foot, a black Ford 500 with two occupants started to drive away from the residence. When the vehicle neared the deputy, he motioned for it to stop so he could investigate the call. The vehicle stopped and the passenger got out and started to walk away from the deputy. The passenger had blood on his clothes and shoes. The deputy started to address the passenger as he was walking away when, without provocation, the driver abruptly accelerated and struck the deputy on his knee with the bumper of the Ford 500. Chan fled the scene in his vehicle, heading westbound on Tyler Street towards Sweetwater Road.
Several Sheriff’s deputies, as well as California Highway Patrol units and a Sheriff’s helicopter converged on the scene to search for the outstanding suspect. One of the responding CHP Officers was checking the area around the 8700-block of Troy Street and observed a male matching the driver description walking down the sidewalk and go into a local business. The CHP officer detained him without incident and confirmed he was the outstanding suspect.
Deputies say Chan and a roommate were involved in a physical altercation inside their residence. A citizen heard the fight occurring inside the residence and called 9-1-1 to report it.
