AZUSA – He wanted someone to repair his cell phone, even though it was 10:30 p.m.
An “Immediate Police Assistance” call brought Azusa PD to the 700 block of S. Vincent Ave. on July 24th. A crying grandmother was arguing with her 22-yr-old grandson. She reported his “Going Crazy” as he audibly broke windows of her home and nearby cars.
Then the emergency call suddenly dropped. Officers quickly arrived to an enraged grandson. He wore a bloody shirt, cursing at family members attempting to calm him in the front yard.
Azusa PD announced, “The grandson then focused on the uniformed Officers and aggressively advanced towards them challenging them to fight. Officers initially gave the grandson numerous commands to stop his actions in an attempt to control him. But the cursing and aggressive behavior continued.”
The grandson began assaulting the officers by punching at them. Then he attempted to grab at objects on the officers’s gun belts. Officers subdued the suspect with a taser. An officer suffered a moderate injury to his upper torso in the arrest attempt.
Both the injured officer and the grandson went to a local hospital. Family members reported that the grandson was possibly intoxicated.
Investigation revealed the source of all this fuss. Apparently the grandson felt upset at the family for not repairing his broken cellular telephone. As a result, the grandson has three felony assault charges with a set bail of $50,000.
