Gang Member Arrested for Gun Possession

Los Angeles: Los Angeles police arrested a gang member for possession of a gun on March 1, 2007, following a pursuit, foot chase and struggle with officers.

Hugo Gonzalez, 23, was one of four or five occupants in a car that officers pursued on suspicion of drunk driving. Around 11:15 PM, two officers from the Rampart Police Station noticed the erratic driving near Washington Boulevard and Mariposa Avenue. The driver refused to stop and led police on a pursuit to 21st Street and Estrella Avenue, where the occupants ran from the car.

Police Officers Carlos Ocegueda, 26, and Osvaldo Delgadillo, 33, focused on Gonzalez when they saw him throw a gun on the pavement as he ran toward a three-story apartment at 1953 South Estrella Avenue. Gonzalez fought with both officers, but was eventually arrested.

Gonzalez sustained a cut to his head during the struggle and was treated at California Hospital. Doctors cleared him for booking, and he was charged with being a gang member in possession of a gun.

As a result of Gonzalez's injury, Force Investigation Division will investigate the officers' use of force, in keeping with LAPD protocols for categorical use-of-force incidents.

Police Officer Carlos Ocegueda has been with LAPD for over 4 and a half years, while his partner has nearly seven years with the department.

Questions may be directed to Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
