Petaluma Police Department have arrested a felony warrant suspect after he resisted officers on Saturday.

Around 6:41 p.m. police received a call of a disturbance in the 100 block of Rocca Drive.

The suspect, identified as 27-year-old Salomon Huitron, was already on the department’s radar after he allegedly harassed a neighbor and vandalized their car in mid-Oct.

Huitron had refused to cooperate at that time and a felony arrest warrant was obtained.

On Saturday, when officers arrived, Huitron went inside his house, as he had done in prior situations. 

Police then attempted to enter his place due to the warrant. 

Authorities say Huitron barricaded his front door attempting to resist being arrested.

When officers were able to get in, Huitron ran to the backyard where he ignored the officer’s commands.

Police say they threatened him with a taser when he took a ‘fighting’ stance. 

Huitron ignored all commands, so officers say they proceeded to use the taser on him.

Officers then arrested Huitron and treated him for minor injuries. 

Huitron is currently booked in Sonoma County Jail. 

No officers were injured during this incident.
