At approximately 8 p.m., a Humboldt Sheriff’s Deputy stopped a man driving a red car near S and 3rd Streets in Eureka. For unknown reasons, the man was held at gunpoint until other officers responded to the scene, according to information gathered over the scanner.

At that point, the man was tested for a DUI.

  • A female cop pulling a gun you say hmm fishy humboldt

  • I missed the part about female co pulling a gun, enlighten me on that donger

  • groba dude osnt trustafarian

    It is not a stretch for me to believe that someone in Eureka was driving while intoxicated.

    Intoxicated drivers are the #1 hazard of motoring in Arcata/Eureka/Fortuna, where the drunks are professional grade…

    Someone wrote recently that 80% of all drivers in Humboldt are chronically intoxicated on one or more drugs!

    I believe this is true. A target rich environment for “all the thug cops” that you folks revile…

    • Well I guess the makes me and mine part of the 20% cause non of us are stupid enough to drive under the influence of anything!

  • This was obviously racially motivated. This County really needs to have a Frank discussion about racism, it’s obviously running rampid.

  • Haha. He’s all hip-hop.. Represent!!

  • unbridled philistine

    Look at the gut on that cop! Really letting himself go huh? I do not think he could even see his gun belt! Or anything else down there..

      • unbridled philistine

        No Not really just pointing out the obvious. I want my tax dollars to go to officers who care about them selves and stay fit! This guy does not care about himself why would he care about us? Part of your responsibility is to be physically fit when you are a cop. That what I was told when I went through the academy in ’04… Guess I have higher standards then you do, But I always expect too much from people in authority. He should feel some body shame though when he sees that profile pic….I know I would.

        • I think that whether someone can do their job should be the criteria. And if he is doing it, then whether or not he conforms to your standard of what he “should” weigh is irrelevant.

  • unbridled philistine

    I agree with you Kym how ever it is questionable if he can run a mile? Or do 1 pull up as you are required to be able to do? Fulfill his duties? Questionable..

    • Questionable is your ability to really read his medical condition. Some people can get over weight due to more than over eating/ bad food choices! There are many reasons that a person can be overweight and neither you nor I know why he is heavy so maybe, just maybe your unkind remarks are just because you hate heavy people / police officers or perhaps both! Either way, your comment was not based on concern but rather your own attitude towards heavy people or police due to your choice of words.
      If you are truly concerned about the health status of our local law enforcers, call down there and have a discussion! Find out what they actually do and the requirements.

  • Yes, focus on the chubby cop and not on the drunk guy who could have run someone over while intoxicated. Typical cop-hating leftists.

  • LET’S GUESS WHO is the image on the the arrested man’s shirt:
    I will start! While it doesn’t fit the man’s ‘image’/style….
