Sheriff: Suspect Kicks Out Patrol Car Window, Jumps Out, Suffers Fatal Injuries

NORTH HIGHLANDS (CBS13) – Authorities say an arrestee who was critically injured after he tried to escape from custody has died.

The 29-year-old man was arrested after deputies responded to a domestic violence call near Galbrath Drive and Walerga Road in North Highlands Thursday night. Deputies say the man was violating a restraining order by being near the home of his estranged wife.

Deputies also discovered he was a wanted parolee. He was taken into custody without incident, but things changed while deputies were driving him to jail.

At some point during the drive, the man allegedly kicked out a back window of the patrol car. He then jumped out while the car was moving, deputies say, and landed on the asphalt.

The man suffered a major head injury. Medics took him to the hospital in critical condition. Friday morning, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office announced that the man had died from his injuries.

The man’s identity has not been released at this time.

  1. Probably drunk or high on something. Perhaps too much pot honey oil or opioids lead to this violent, totally irrational behavior.
