Police: Subject Resists Arrest and Takes Gun From Officer

Wichita Falls, Texas -

On May 10, WFPD Patrol Officers were dispatched to the 2200 block of Harrison in reference to a possible disturbance.  Another officer was in the area working an off duty job who recognized the names in the call from a previous day and so he responded as well.

That officer knew that the offender, 22-year-old Trent Gonzales, had a protective order barring him from this location.  The off-duty officer made contact with the Gonzales and attempted to place him under arrest.  Gonzales resisted arrest and was able to take the officer's gun out of its holster.  The officer was able to hit the pistol out of the Gonzales' hand and attempted to arrest him again.  

The dispatched officers showed up and assisted the officer that previously arrived on the scene. Gonzales continued to resist and had to be tazed.

Gonzales was taken into custody and charged with Violation of a Protective Order, Aggravated Assault Family Violence, Taking a Firearm From an Officer, and Resisting Arrest.  Gonzales is currently under a $71,500 bond.
