Redding, Calif.--14 people were detained and one man arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, drug possession and a hate crime.
It started Sunday morning at 11 a.m. on Saginaw Street in Redding when a man in his car was sideswipped by a silver car.
Police later learned the car belongs to 23 year old Zackary Miller of Redding, a wanted felon.
The victim says when he approached the silver car, the driver (suspected to be Miller) yelled racial slurs at him, backed into him and knocked him over.
He says people in a blue Pontiac also on scene yelled more racial slurs and also drove into him, knocking him down a second time.
The victim got their plates and Redding Police and CHP Air-ops sorrounded Miller's home at 4:40 p.m. Sunday evening.
Police say one person was throwing items onto the roof, while 3 others tried to run away.
Ultimately 14 people in the house came out and were detained.
Police found several bags of what they believe to be methamphetamine inside, and on the roof.
Four people in the house also had warrants out for their arrest.
