A Red Bluff man is behind bars after he reportedly resisted arrest and assaulted an officer.
It happened around 11:30 last night when the suspect - 35 year old Robert Villasenor - allegedly stole a large stereo speaker from the bed of a pick up.
The owner of the pick up called police.
Officers arrived at the city park near the chamber of commerce where Villasenor was fleeing the scene.
Villasenor went on to batter an officer when being pursued.
When Villasenor was arrested officers learned that he had a "no bail" felony warrant.
Villasenor was booked into Tehama County Jail.
His bail is set at nine thousand dollars.
