Assault and Resisting Arrest

Case# 20-006306


On 11/15/20, at approximately 10:29 PM, Chico Police officers were dispatched to a fight in the parking lot of Buffalo Wild Wings (845 East Ave, Chico, CA) with one of the involved parties being unconscious. As the information was being dispatched to officers, one officer arrived on scene and witnessed two males involved in a physical altercation and confirmed there was a male unconscious. When the officer attempted to contact them, one of the involved, later identified as Randy GARCIA, age 22, fled the scene. After a short chase, GARCIA was detained without incident. As several officers arrived on scene, along with Chico Fire and Butte EMS, they tended to the individual who was unconscious and was transported to a local hospital. Officers also contacted the other male involved in the altercation. He was treated by medics for his minor injuries.
Officers spoke with several witnesses who saw the altercation. From the interviews, officers learned GARCIA was walking in the parking lot and contacted both victims. At some point, all parties got into a physical altercation.
The victim who was transported to the hospital sustained moderate injuries. All injuries were non-life threatening. GARCIA was ultimately arrested and transported to Butte County Jail where he was booked for assault causing serious bodily injury and resisting arrest.
