“Officers attempted to contact a subject for a parole violation and outstanding warrant. The subject fled as officers attempted a traffic stop. After securing a perimeter and conducting a search, officers were able to locate and arrest the subject.”
According to radio traffic, the detainee in this police log entry was a parolee at large with a want for assault with a deadly weapon; and was on “PRCS” (Post Release Community Supervision).
Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) is a form of supervision provided to an offender who has been released from a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) institution to the jurisdiction of a county agency, pursuant to the Post Release Community Supervision Act of 2011.
The brief pursuit went from Railroad Drive over to the River Garden community where the subject bailed out of the vehicle and into the community. A perimeter was established and with the help of bystanders, the subject was located in an RV, sitting in the front, drinking water.
The subject eventually came out, and immediately began having seizures and vomiting. Officers rendered aid until fire and EMS crews arrived and transported the subject to the hospital in custody.
According to radio reports, the subject had a history of running from authorities, and the last time he was arrested, he ingested a high dose of methamphetamine.
Bystanders told PSN that the subject was known to and frequented the neighborhood, often doing burnouts in the street for the kids.
