Later that night, an officer contacted Silva at Pacific Drive and Benjamin Holt Drive. Silva reportedly refused the officer’s commands, so the officer then tased Silva and took him into custody.

After taking Silva into custody the officer was contacted by an adult male victim who said he was driving his vehicle with his three children inside when the suspect began intentionally trying to ram him with his vehicle.

The victim had to swerve away and take evasive maneuvers to avoid being hit.

Silva was arrested for robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, child endangerment, and avoiding arrest.
