Police Use Control Hold to Subdue Subject

Los Angeles: Officers responding to a radio call of a man with a mental illness exhibiting bizarre behavior used a control hold to subdue him Sunday afternoon.

On September 24, 2006, shortly after 3:00 p.m., Harbor Area Officers Dana Lovato and Jesus Ruiz responded to the radio call in the 1400 block of West Carson Street. When they arrived, police saw Ronald Manosa, 21, standing in front of an apartment building. Officers attempted to make verbal contact with Manosa but he was unresponsive. Based on Manosa's strange behavior, officers waited several minutes before deciding to approach him.

While police were attempting to handcuff Manosa, he resisted and began to fight. Officers wrestled him to the ground and requested assistance from other units. The fight continued for several more minutes increasing in intensity and bringing the two officers to the point of almost complete exhaustion. Finally, Officer Ruiz, in a last ditch effort to control Manosa, used his hands and applied a Carotid Restraint Control Hold. This proved effective stopping Manosa's aggressive and violent behavior. Additional units arrived and assisted in taking Manosa into custody.

Department policy allows for the use of a Carotid Restraint Control Hold for self-protection or the protection of others from immediate serious bodily injury or the threat of death.

Los Angeles City Fire Paramedics responded and transported Officers Lovato and Ruiz to Torrance Memorial Hospital for injuries sustained during the fight. Ruiz received a hairline fracture to his right forearm; Lovato suffered numerous abrasions. Both were treated and released.

Manosa received treatment for several abrasions. He was then taken to Twin Towers Correctional Facility where he was booked for resisting arrest.

Force Investigation Division is handling the inquiry. Questions may be directed to Media Relation Section at 213-485-3586.
