Fleeing Oakland man could face up to 18-months in jail

Andre Billock Clement, a 31-year-old Oakland resident, was arrested early Sunday afternoon in residential Alameda after police were called to the home to quell a disturbance. When the police arrived, Clement fled the scene on foot and disregarded the orders of several police officers to halt. Clement was eventually apprehended after a foot chase that lasted for several blocks.

The 911-caller reported that a gun may have been involved in the disturbance, but after a search of Clement was conducted, no weapons were found on his person.  Police retraced the steps of the chase and did not recover abandoned weapons.  Clement was found in possession of “a pipe used to smoke illegal narcotics,” according to the arresting officer’s report.

Ultimately, Clement was charged with violation of 11364 HS and 148 PC: possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest. Possessing drug paraphernalia is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in a county jail and a maximum $1,000 fine. Resisting arrest, also a misdemeanor, is punishable by up to one year in a county jail and/or a maximum $1,000 fine.
