At that point, according to the report, (redacted name) admitted to Howser that she had struck her daughter in the face a few times because she had lied, been deceitful and called her dirty names. While talking to (redacted name), the report states that Howser observed the other officers involved in a struggle with Luis.
“Strang stated at the time of his initial contact he was unsure of the exact details of the assault,” according to the report. “Strang said he asked Luis what was going on and Luis advised him that it was none of his business and they were dealing with a ‘family matter.’ Strang said Luis eventually informed him that his wife had struck his daughter. Strang then informed Luis that he needed his identification, at which time he said he wasn’t giving it to him.”
In the report, Strang said Luis stepped back and crossed his arms and then tried to walk around him. That’s when Minard, Bradley and Clarkston intervened.
“Clarkston said Luis was taking (an) aggressive stance with Strang and attempted to get around him several times,” the report indicates. “Clarkston said he believed Luis was trying to go after (redacted name), who was a good distance away from them. Strang continued to ask Luis for identification, at which time he again stated he wasn’t going to give it to him.”
After a final request for his ID from Bradley, the report states Luis acted aggressively and got into a fighting stance in which he “squared off” with the officers. That is when, according to the report, Minard attempted to place Luis into investigative detention until they could ascertain his identity.
The report says Minard attempted to place an arm bar on Luis to place him in handcuffs, but Luis threw Minard off, according to the report.
