Weapons Call/Resisting Arrest/Failure to ID – Pleasant Hill Station
Two patrons reported seeing a subject on the platform, wearing tan pants, a “Warriors” jacket and a backpack with a gun in his left front pocket. BART and Pleasant Hill police officers responded to search the platforms, the station, and parking structure for the suspect. An extensive search was conducted but officers were unable to locate the suspect. Trains were held for approximately 12 minutes for the search. About 45 minutes later, the station agent at Pleasant Hill reported seeing the possible suspect standing in the bus zone. Officers responded and again searched for the suspect with negative results. A station agent later reported seeing the possible suspect smoking a cigarette and pacing about on the Walnut Creek platform (2) and officers responded to search for the suspect again. Trains were held out of this station as the officers coordinated a response. The officers detained the suspect in question as he walked down to the concourse level of the station from the platform. The suspect resisted the detention by trying to walk away from the officers and was taken into custody. The officers were unable to locate the gun or the subjects backpack. A sergeant responded to conduct a use of force investigation. The suspect was arrested and booked into the Martinez Detention Facility for resisting arrest. The officers were initially unable to confirm the identity of the suspect. The suspect was later positively identified and was shown to be on two counts of probation for resisting arrest and providing a false name to a peace officer. The suspect was also found to be on parole for assault with a deadly weapon. A parole hold was placed on the suspect and an additional charge of providing a false name to a peace officer was added to the booking sheet.
