Arrested: Hector Luis Perez (37) Santa Ana
On 6-19-04, at approximately 1045 PM, while patrol officers were conducting a felony car stop in the area of 1702 W. First Street, the suspect, who was not involved with the car stop, began slinging glass marbles at the officers with a slingshot.
The suspect was unsuccessful in hitting any of the officers, but one marble struck the rear window of a unit, causing it to shatter.
Officers directed Orange County Sheriff’s Air support “DUKE” to the area where the suspect was slinging the marbles and the flight officers located three possible suspects in the rear yard of 1712 W. Second Street.
After reviewing their in-flight video surveillance system, the flight officers were able to positively identify the primary suspect. The suspect was booked for multiple counts of ADW against Police Officers and felony vandalism.
