Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

While on patrol, Lieutenant Boling was given information about Carlos Hurtado who had an active parole warrant for his arrest. Lt. Boling was told Carlos was on the N Bypass driving a red Honda Accord LX registered to his brother. Lt. Boling located the vehicle on the N Bypass at Thornton Ave.

The vehicle turned onto Thornton Ave where Lt. Boling initiated his emergency vehicle equipment to conduct a traffic stop. The vehicle failed to stop and continued on Thornton Ave, passing two vehicles in a no passing zone and failing to maintain his lane of travel, then turned right onto Trammel St. While on Trammel St, Carlos slammed on the brakes and ran the vehicle off the roadway near Knox St.

Carlos exited the vehicle and fled from the vehicle. He would not comply with Lt. Boling’s commands and attempted to flee into a residence. He could not enter the residence and turned toward Lt. Boling and would not comply with commands. Lt. Boling deployed his taser striking him with one probe which was not effective at stopping him from continuing to reach into his coat and he failed to comply with Lt. Boling’s orders to keep his hands above his head. Therefore, Lt. Boling deployed the second cartridge to attempt to gain neuromuscular incapacitation. After the second deployment was successful, Carlos kept his hands above his head and Lt. Boling was able to wait on backup to secure him.

Deputy Thompson arrived on scene to assist and Lt. Boling placed Carlos in handcuffs behind his back. Carlos was in custody and the investigation was turned over to Drug Unit who arrived on scene. It was determined by checking Carlos through GCIC he was unlicensed. Lt. Boling charged Carlos with the traffic charges on uniform traffic citations and the remainder of the charges were taken by the drug unit. All evidence was turned over to the drug unit.
