Police Log: Leadfoots; Bomb Squad; Scrappy Drunk

Notable incidents encountered Dec. 2 to 8.

A 37-year-old man, being placed under arrest for suspected public intoxication shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday on downtown's First Street, put up such a fuss with the Livermore Police Department, back-up units were called to assist, according to individuals at the scene.

"He was clearly resisting getting into the cop car," according to one witness. "They finally managed to get him into the car when he began kicking."

The suspect was removed from the vehicle, and with other officers helping, had his ankles placed in restraints, she said. 

He was eventually transported to Santa Rita Jail, Dublin, and booked for alleged drunk-and-disorderly conduct and resisting police, according to files.

His records show a prior Livermore arrest for drunken-driving in 2010.

Also last week, the bomb squad was called, plus numerous vehicular accidents were logged, including a car hitting a house, a car hitting a utility pole, and a freeway collision that sent a semi-truck sliding down the moutainside.

Seems like a lot of people get arrested for being drunk in downtown Livermore, the bars need to do their job and stop serving patrons who have already had too much. Patch should publish the names of those arrested, it is a public record, and it might make a few people smarten up!

@david: It's not the job of a bar or tavern to monitor drunks. These establishments are in business to make money. The message you should be telling our community is live a sober drugfree life so these embarrassing behavioral problems don't occur. Remember it's personal responsibility not paternalism that will create a better society. So anyway thank you for your concern as do the rest of the drunks thank you as well but their not to sure about your idea.

Who is responsible for enforcing the California Business & Professions Code, especially Section 25602 in Livermore if it isn't the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control? 25602. (a) Every person who sells, furnishes, gives, or causes to be sold, furnished, or given away, any alcoholic beverage to any habitual or common drunkard or to any obviously intoxicated person is guilty of a misdemeanor. (b) No person who sells, furnishes, gives, or causes to be sold, furnished, or given away, any alcoholic beverage pursuant to subdivision (a) of this section shall be civilly liable to any injured person or the estate of such person for injuries inflicted on that person as a result of intoxication by the consumer of such alcoholic beverage. (From http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=bpc&group=25001-26000&file=25600-25622) Because if the bartenders and servers of these alcoholic beverages where patrons are allowed to get intoxicated while at their establishments are not monitoring their patrons under the provisions of 25602, then they should have their licenses revoked before somebody out there gets killed or injured. Now if the ABC is not doing this, I would think that it would be incumbent on the city, if not its Police Department, to be doing this enforcing, but that's me.
