Lakeport Police Respond to Incident Involving Assault on Officers

“On March 20th, 2024, at approximately 4:30 PM Lakeport Police Department (LPD) Officers were dispatched to a residence in the 900 block of 11th Street to investigate the report of a disturbance. After arriving at the residence, officers located an adult female subject who had visible injuries and determined that she had been the victim of domestic violence. She was safely removed from the residence by officers and taken to a local hospital by our Lake Family Resource Center (LFRC) Crisis Responder. Officers also located an adult male suspect at the scene and identified him as Patrick James Davies, 35 years of age. Officers attempted to detain Davies at the door, but he resisted and assaulted two officers, causing minor injuries to both, before fleeing into the house. Officers deployed a taser during the contact, but it was not effective.

Six additional officers responded and began negotiating with Davies to surrender. To protect the safety of the officers and community, the westbound lane of 11th Street between Mellor Drive and Safeway was closed, and traffic controls were put in place by Lakeport Public Works (LPW). Additionally, Lakeport Fire Protection District was called and sent a fire engine and ambulance to the scene to standby. Lake County Behavioral Health (LCBH) Licensed Clinical Social Workers also responded to assist us with negotiations.

At approximately 8:42 PM, Davies peacefully surrendered to Lakeport Police Officers and was taken into custody. He was arrested and transported to the Lake County Correctional Facility and booked for felony domestic violence, felony resisting with violence, felony terrorist threats, committing a felony while on bail for a previous felony, felony assault on a peace officer and resisting arrest.

Davies was previously arrested by the LPD on March 4th of this year for felony domestic violence, felony false imprisonment, felony battery with injuries and felony assault with a deadly weapon. He was released on bail for those charges.

Due to the repeated crimes and violence, officers sought a bail enhancement from a Lake County Superior Court judge. The bail on this current arrest was set at $500,000.00

Traffic controls on 11th Street were removed at approximately 9 PM

Chief of Police”
