Police and prosecutors in Pierce County say Brian Allen Roberts, II was on his scooter on the last day of August when he came upon his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend walking near South D Street in Tacoma. And apparently the sight didn't sit well with him.
After the attack concluded, and authorities had been contacted, Roberts' ex was transported to the hospital where it was determined she'd suffered a fractured hand in the assault.
Meanwhile, Tacoma Police tracked the angry man on the scooter.
From charging documents:
Officer Wolfe and Officer Meeds received a description of the defendant and saw him on his scooter. They were in a fully marked patrol car and activated their emergency lights/sires in attempt to stop the defendant who looked back at their patrol car and sped up. He turned into an alley and wrecked his scooter. The defendant recovered from the fall and ran through private yards as police gave chase. He was told to stop, but continued to flee. The defendant jumped a fence into a backyard and police lost sight of him. A K-9 was called to the scene and located/apprehended the defendant. He was advised of his Miranda rights and transported to the hospital for treatment from the K-9 contact.
Roberts was subsequently charged with second-degree assault (domestic violence related), violation of a court order (domestic violence related), and resisting arrest. Charging documents also indicate Roberts had four warrants for his arrest at the time he was apprehended by police.
