Man with Outstanding Warrants Delays his Arrest with Fire and Sewage
OAKLEY — Officers assisting bail bond agents arrested Larry M. Davis, 43 of Sacramento, for numerous outstanding warrants. His arrest was delayed by fire, raw sewage, and an assault on a police dog. Davis presently remains in custody in lieu of $645,000 bail.
On April 13, Davis fled from bail bond agents who requested assistance from Oakley police. Officers responded to the area of Third Street and East Home Avenue, where Davis eluded apprehension for another 90 minutes.
Davis jumped from rooftop to rooftop, before barricading himself inside the basement of a house. A canine unit was dispatched from the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office. One dog sustained minor injuries when Davis allegedly struck it with a blunt object.
The situation got even uglier. While the home was occupied, Davis allegedly started a small fire in the basement. Police quickly extinguished the fire. Next, Davis allegedly dismantled a sewage pipe underneath the house causing a disgusting flood.
A statement released by Oakley police says. “Davis remained noncompliant with officers and refused to exit the basement.” Nonetheless, he was eventually flushed out and arrested at 2:14 p.m.
Presently, Davis is being housed at the Martinez Detention Facility. Including several bench warrants, he was booked for a total of 25 charges. He is scheduled to appear in court on April 26.
Charges facing Davis include sexual battery, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon, and torture. Additional charges against him include burglary, identity theft, and battery on a police animal.
Davis is a registered sex offender, and he has failed to maintain current registration information as required.
