Man arrested for attempted assault of a SLO officer

Brian Lima

San Luis Obispo police arrested a 24-year-old man for allegedly attempting to run his car into a police officer Saturday at about 6 p.m.

Two officers on bicycles first attempted to stop Brian Lima of King City for driving erratically on Nipomo Street near the SLO Children’s Museum. Lima then fled from the officers and turned onto a dead-end portion of Dana Street.

After one of the officers stepped off of his bike and motioned Lima to pull over, Lima attempted to run over the officer who was able to jump out of the way.

Police later took Lima into custody without further incident on Toro Street.

Police booked Lima into San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of  assault with a deadly weapon against an officer, driving under the influence and reckless driving with bail set at $50,000.

Who’s his daddy?????

I agree with Cindy that the bail for the kid is way too low… the MJ is set just about right.

He probably couldn’t find a parking place and got frustrated. Save a student, raise the parking fees.

3 felony charges including DUI only amounts to a 50k bail??

Drugs are bad mmkay especially mixed with cheap downtown well drinks- this has to amount to the

worst hangover this kid has had

MMkay! ; )

I predict the assault charge will not stick. The bike cops are butt-hurt, and want to cause max damage on a comparatively small charge. They know it won’t stick, but since they’re not allowed to beat people up anymore, they gotta get their digs in (for being “dissed”) however they can. In that light, $50K for DUI and reckless seems about right.

Just don’t be stupid and release the gas from a can of butane in your kitchen while attempting to alter your marijuana, you will have 10X the bail to pay. I thought it was a very very serious offense to attempt to kill a LEO, I guess, playing with your marijuana is 10 times worse in SLO county or is it being stupid that sets a bail at 500K?

Good question, Cindy!
