Man is arrested in Fontana after he allegedly fights with two deputies, who suffer minor injuries | News

A man was arrested after he allegedly refused to leave a business and then clashed with lawmakers in western Fontana, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

On May 18, around 8 a.m., an employee at a business on block 8400 of Cherry Avenue asked the suspect, Joshua Gilpin, a temporary 37-year-old frequented by Fontana, to leave. Gilpin allegedly armed himself with a knife, but eventually left and the victim initially did not contact law enforcement.

That same day around 3 p.m., the employee returned to work and saw Gilpin back in business. The employee left the area and called the Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies found Gilpin and found that he matched the description of an armed entity that had previously been reported in a nearby parking lot. A check of the records revealed that he was in Community Oversight after publication.

When lawmakers tried to search Gilpin for the reported knife, he walked away, leading them to a brief foot chase.

Deputies fought with Gilpin for several minutes as he allegedly attacked them. During the fight, Gilpin allegedly took one of the deputy’s firearms. Deputies used force to overcome Gilpin’s resistance, prevent his escape and defend themselves, the Sheriff’s Department said.

Deputies and other officers from the Fontana Police Department responded to help and Gilpin was arrested.

Deputies suffered minor injuries during the clash with Gilpin.

Gilpin was transported to a local hospital and then held at the West Valley Detention Center on charges of using violence against executive officers, attempting to disarm an MP, resisting arrest, and beating a gun.
