A 37-year-old homeless man legally required to register as a sex offender has been arrested on suspicion of resisting police and violating his parole.

David Blakley, a transient man, was already on parole for indecent exposure at the time of the incident. Before being apprehended by police, Blakley was allegedly at a gas station nearby, “bothering customers,” according to Deputy B. Christensen of the Fontana Sheriff’s Department.

A Fontana police deputy noticed Blakley standing in the middle of the road on Valley Boulevard west of Cherry Avenue around 5 AM on Saturday, September 3rd. For Blakley’s safety, “the deputy contacted him to keep him from getting hit by passing vehicles,” said Deputy Christensen. “Upon contact, Blakley was uncooperative with the deputy, reached into his waistband as if he was grabbing a weapon, and fled.”

The deputy ran after him, and Blakley surrendered shortly afterwards. He was arrested and booked at West Valley Detention Center for resisting/obstructing a peace officer and violating his parole.

“A weapon was never found, and it is not known why Blakely reached into his waistband,”
