Looking down the 17100 block of Gale Avenue
INDUSTRY – 49-year-old Christian Richard Ferrini added “assault on a peace officer” to his history of various criminal convictions (burglary in 1986, evasion in 1996, petty theft in 1990 and 2010, and grand theft in 2010 and 2011).
This most current charge and incident occurred on December 22, 2016, when a deputy was investigating a theft at a store on the 17100 block of Gale Avenue in Industry.
The deputy spotted Ferrini in a nearby parking lot and asked him to put his hands up. Instead, Ferrini ran to his car, put it in reverse, damaged the patrol car, and nearly hit the officer as he drove off.
Ferrini escaped, temporarily. Two weeks later he was arrested and charged.
He faces up to 13 years in state prison.
