Deputies Responding to Medical Call Are Attacked By Angry Mob Of Trailer Park Dwellers - Four Dimwits Arrested
Oscar's Jail Booking, Jaime's Jail Booking
Esther's Jail Booking, Jose's Jail Booking
Bonita Springs, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Four tweedle-dumbs were arrested Saturday night after an angry mob of trailer park dwellers attacked deputies who were called to assist an intoxicated man.
According to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to the Manna Christian Mobile Home Park about 7:30 p.m. in response to a medical assistance call.
When deputies and paramedics arrived on scene they attempted to assist an intoxicated man, later identified as 18-year-old Oscar Garcia. When medics attempted to treat Garcia, he began punching and kicking at the EMS worker. Garcia reportedly ignored orders to stop, kicking one of the deputies several times in the leg.
Deputies were attempting to pull Oscar Garcia off the medic, when 41-year-old Jaime Garcia became involved in the confrontation by striking a deputy in the shoulder. Deputies say Oscar Garcia continued kicking, rendering them unable to bring either man under control.
As the confrontation dragged on, a crowd of 40 - 60 people gathered at the scene, expressing hostility towards the deputies. Deputies called for backup as the angry mob began taking up golf clubs and sticks as makeshift weapons.
When backup arrived, the crowd was pushed back away, allowing deputies to bring Oscar Garcia under control. It was then Esther Garcia entered the fray by attempting to pull the deputy away from Garcia. A crowd onlooker, 30-year-old Jose Hilario, refused orders to back away, earning himself a resisting/obstruction charge.
Oscar Garcia was charged with battery on an officer/firefighter/emt. Jaime Garcia was charged with battery on an officer/firefighter/emt and resisting arrest w/ violence. Esther Garcia was charged with battery on an officer/firefighter/emt and resisting arrest w/ violence.
All four were booked into the Lee County Jail and have since been released.
