crime scene tapeOfficers arrested a father and son who allegedly attacked two Lompoc Police officers who were responding to a domestic dispute call Friday evening.

Shortly after 8:30 p.m., the two officers arrived at a home on the 400 block of M Street to investigate a restraining order violation. Officers found Arturo Gutierrez, 52, hiding in the unnamed victim’s backyard. [KEYT]

When officers tried to place Arturo Gutierrez in handcuffs, he allegedly grabbed one of the officers, pulled him down to the ground, and began punching him in the chest.

A second officer attempted to pull Arturo Gutierrez off the first officer when the suspects son, Luis Gutierrez, 25, allegedly began punching the second officer in the head.

Additional officers arrived and both suspects were arrested.

Medical personnel transported both of the currently unnamed officers to a hospital for treatment. One officer suffered a concussion and was later released.

Officers arrested Arturo Gutierrez who was charged with violation of a restraining order, resisting an officer, and violation of a felony stalking probation. Luis Gutierrez was charged with felony battery on a police officer, resisting an officer, violation of a ‘no contact’ order, and violation of a felony assault with deadly weapon probation.

    Please let us know that you would be ok if your family member made a mistake and received a “correction” at the hands of some bad apples, perhaps a strip search for a minor thing or just a plane ol’ beating.

    Join us in reality.

    This guy lead the police on a life and death one hour pursuit after committing a violent crime. He never cooperated until the last 2 seconds. Sorry too late.

    People like you have no idea what it’s like to be in a life and death situation for an hour running down a violent criminal.

    How horrible and sadistic for someone to think it’s appropriate for agents of the government to beat someone down after a surrender, or to shoot a man in the back.

    Funny. Horrible is WWII. Sadistic is Auschwitz.

    This was just a little “hello” finally got you after chasing your for an hour. Guys in MMA matches take 10 times this much punishment.

    You probably can’t relate if you cry when you cut your fingernail too short. But then again, you’d never be the guy chasing a criminal for an hour either.

      WWII. and Auschwitz. have nothing to do with this, it’s not war or MMA.

      You’d never be the guy either, just cheering them on.

    Have fun in anger management. And, in jail. It isn’t the most popular stance to be the one in jail for beating on an officer. You can go days without toilet paper….

    Personally, I can appreciate LEOs frustration seeing how the courts will not do anything to those who resist arrest.
    Let’s wait and see if these pieces of human debris do any jail time of just get probation. Perhaps next time the LEO’s will shoot.
    That way these POS will be “Dead Right”!

        After you attacked them previously, shot pets to death in front of children, etc. No sympathy from me for that horse thief. Not all that long ago he would have been hanged on the spot. What is it about these slimeballs that get this outpouring of sympathy after getting what they deserve?

          I am a DIE HARD conservative and support police WHEN the job is done right. I am not so PARTISAN and BLIND to justice as to state that, well he ran from the cops so he deserves it. Well have you got a speeding ticket more than once? Should we beat your ass for that? Let the punishment fit the crime. He ran from the cops. He will be CHARGED for evading arrest. As a nation if we lose the rules of law WTF is the point of law!!!???

            The frustration for LEOs is in the punishment. Too often, these human pieces of debris gets no jail time. That emboldens the $#@! to do it again and again. There are some that refuse to go to jail without a fight (Rodney King was one).

            Increase the punishment for crime against LEOs and you will see a decrease in police brutality cases!

          Let me take it a step further for you so you can UNDERSTAND!! In the case of Ferguson, yes if you decide to strike or tussle with the cops, then you take that risk but AGAIN if you are laying on the ground saying NO JOY, I’m out, THE PURSUIT IS OVER!!!!!

        No threat????? So you’re saying leading officers on a forty mile, high speed chase, stealing a horse and engaging officers with a 1600 pound animal while they’re on foot is no threat? I disagree, particularly when all he had to do was comply with the warrant, issued by the court, and submit to a court ordered search. He made the decision, and he faced the consequences.

        Victim ideology in a quote:

        “He strikes me and wept, then ran before me weeping, and claiming I struck him”

          Once someone surrenders, the consequences are arrest, jail, court and prison. Getting a free gang in blue beatdown is not in the manual, not part of the job and certainly not part of a free society.

            I understand that, but along with the outcry against the cops, why is there so much sympathy for the dirtbag, who really deserved what he got, even if it was wrong as you explain?

              I have no sympathy for the as#0ll, however we as a legal system never agreed to bonus beatings at the hands of sworn Leo’s plus a trial, prison etc.

              Where do you draw the line at, rubber hoses for under 18 years old, but night sticks and tasers for adult who don’t do as they are told? People think it’s like some football game and enjoy cheering when the jackboot connects with someone’s junk (then his head, ribs arms etc).

        Yup. Only when they are right on him does he cooperate. He was a model citizen for those last 5 seconds. The hour leading up to him giving up was an all out war.
        That was just a little “gotcha” welcoming. The main course will be the next 8 years in jail.

          Perhaps someone could get a little night sticking instead of a speeding ticket.

            To compare a speeding ticket to what this idiot did is plain stupid.

              No, what is stupid is not using context, on purpose to attack.

              If people are ok with police beatdowns as a form of “policing” then the same people should be ok with smaller beatdowns for lessor offences. Perhaps you could cane someone for disorderly conduct and shoplifting.

              Please let us know that you would be ok if your family member made a mistake and received a “correction” at the hands of some bad apples, perhaps a strip search for a minor thing or just a plane ol’ beating.

              Beatdowns/murders under the color of authority have no place in a free country.
