Narcotic Suspect Injured in Struggle with Police

Los Angeles: A narcotic suspect suffered a fractured shoulder as she struggled with officers who were taking her into custody for a narcotic violation.

On Saturday, February 16, 2008 at around 8:00 p.m., Police Officer Nily Gabriel and his partner were in the area of 660 South Stanford Avenue conducting a narcotics investigation. The suspect, Larri Lynne Calkins, had been detained as part of the investigation.

As Officer Gabriel and his partner were taking Calkins into custody for a narcotic violation, she began to struggle by pulling herself away from the officer’s grasp, in an attempt to avoid arrest. Officer Gabriel had control of Calkins left arm and as he was placing it behind her back to handcuff her, both officers heard a loud “pop.”

Officer Gabriel immediately requested an ambulance for Calkins and she was transported to a local hospital for medical treatment. Calkins was subsequently admitted to the hospital for treatment of a broken shoulder.

Neither officer was injured during the struggle.

Officer Gabriel and his partner did recover a small quantity of rock cocaine from Calkins who was arrested for Possession for Sales of Base Cocaine.

Force Investigation Division is handling the investigation.
