An officer was checking the parking lot when he noticed a van with two males sitting inside. The officer approached the driver as he waited for dispatch to check the license plate. The vehicle came back stolen and the officer attempted to take the driver into custody. The two immediately started to fight. The suspect was able to break free, and ran around the corner of the Maverik. The officer caught up with the suspect and wrestled him to the ground again. The suspect attempted to take the officer’s gun. Other officers responded and assisted in subduing the suspect. Police booked John Langi, 28, into jail for disarming a police officer, possession of stolen property, fleeing, assault on an officer, interference, trespass, false info, and warrants.
