Early this morning I woke up to men yelling at each other. I live in a college neighborhood so I am used to people being awake – and loud – at ridiculous hours. This, however, seemed different. It was about 4 a.m. and the men seemed to be extremely angry – much angrier than I’ve heard any drunken students in the area.
When I left the house around 7:10 to take the bus to school, about four police cars were blocking off the intersection between Ramona and Tassajara. Unfortunately I had to get to campus for class therefore I couldn’t stop and interview the police about what happened, however I found a few articles from local news stations about the situation.
Apparently there was a fight between a recent parolee and some police officers. Three police officers were injured, however none of the injuries were severe. The parolee, Jason McMaster, was arrested and taken to a local hospital for treatment. He will face multiple criminal charges. More information will be available soon on local news sites.
