The Blotter | Trespasser flees scene, resists arrest, jumps out of ambulance

The female suspect was eventually taken to Santa Rita Jail in Dublin. However, it took some effort to get her there.

At 4:14 p.m. on Feb. 10, a trespasser was reported on Fairview Avenue. The female found at the scene had warrants out from San Francisco for possession of narcotics and Alameda for assault with a deadly weapon, stolen vehicle and DUI, according to Piedmont police Capt. Chris Monahan.

The woman fled from officers when they tried to detain her. They eventually used “control holds” to detain her, according to Monahan.

She was sent to Highland Hospital in an ambulance, but while en route, escaped out of the back of the ambulance. Officers again detained her using control holds. She was taken to Highland Hospital and after being cleared there at 10:30 p.m., was transported to Santa Rita Jail in Dublin. She was booked for the warrant as well as resisting arrest and violating her probation.

On Feb. 9, a call was made to Piedmont High School disparaging the school. It was reported on the police log as a threat but Monahan said “no specific threat was made to the school, staff, or students.” The case is under investigation.

On Feb. 7, two reports came in for reckless driving by a driver in a white Tesla. One report said the car was speeding and doing burnouts. Officers pulled over the vehicle but did not witness the reckless driving. Three juveniles were found in the car. The owner of the vehicle was contacted and said his son should not be driving the car. A relative came to pick up the juveniles and the owner of the vehicle retrieved it later.

At 5:11 a.m. on Feb. 10, a report came in of the sound of sawing on Mesa Avenue. A navy blue Honda Civic was found by officers on arrival. The vehicle fled west on Moraga Avenue. Officers attempted to stop the car but the driver failed to yield. A 2002 Honda Accord on Mesa was then discovered to have had its catalytic converter stolen. The loss is estimated to be $1,000, Monahan said.
