Saturday, the Redding Police Department responded to a vehicle rollover near Hilltop Drive and Dana Drive. The driver had fled the scene.
An officer eventually located the man, Anthony Ray Trujillo, 53 years old, near Food Maxx on Churn Road. When the officer tried to detain Trujillo, he told the officer to shoot him, attempted to hit the officer in the face, and then fled into a nearby dental office, where the physical altercations continued inside the waiting room.
Once more officers arrived, Trujillo was finally taken into custody. He is on active probation for robbery, and was booked on charges of assault on a peace officer, resisting by use of violence, hit and run, driving on a suspended license, and violation of his probation.
