LA VERNE, CALIFORNIA - At 11:03 pm California Highway Patrol along with Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to a traffic collision with one person trapped at Damien Ave and E Juanita Ave. Los Angeles County Fire Department was the first on scene and located a vehicle on its side. The male driver made it out safely and refused medical treatment and was not transported. California Highway Patrol remained on scene finishing up the report and was having the vehicle towed, and the victim at that time was standing by for private transportation. CHP left the scene before the tow truck driver. Sometime after 12:30 AM the tow truck driver called 911 saying the victim, now the suspect, just pointed a gun at him and demanded to get his property from his vehicle that was on top of the tow truck.


California Highway Patrol responded back out to the scene and located the suspect in the middle of the street. Officer made contact with the suspect who was not listening to the officers orders. CHP officers eventually took the suspect into custody with more officers responding to the location to searchfor the weapon. The tow truck driver told the officers that he pointed a gun at him and wanted to get his property from the vehicle. Then the driver said the suspect threw the gun somewhere in the bushes. California Highway Patrol requested an Upland K9 to come out and assist them with the search for the weapon.
