Drunk minor repeatedly punches sheriff's dep. while being arrested

Posted: Updated:

FALLBROOK (CNS) - A drunken boy repeatedly punched a sheriff's deputy while being arrested on suspicion of several offenses, including robbing a vehicle, deputies said Saturday.

A sheriff's deputy attempted to arrest the juvenile for public drunkenness about 10 p.m. Friday, in the 1100 block of South Vine Street, when the boy pulled away and repeatedly punched the deputy in the head and face, according to Sheriff's Sgt. Patrick Yates.

The deputy wrestled with the suspect for about two minutes before additional deputies arrived and restrained the boy.

Deputies then determined the boy robbed a nearby vehicle and he was taken to juvenile hall on suspicion of burglary, battery on a peace officer, resisting arrest and public drunkenness, Yates said.

The minor, whose name and age were not released, had been arrested May 20 for allegedly robbing another vehicle, Yates said, and property from a third vehicle was found in the suspect's possession this time.
