On July 21st, 2018 just after 11pm, the Weed Police Department responded to reports of a physical fight between multiple persons at 192 Main St., where a concert had just ended. Three officers responded to the scene and found an active physical fight with a growing crowd. While trying to stop the physical altercation, which had moved down the block to a private parking lot at a commercial/residential apartment complex, officers arrested two people. The crowd attempted to dissuade officers’ attempts to take the subjects into custody. Officers arrested an adult male and an adult female for obstructing and resisting a peace officer during the incident. During the confrontation, members of the surrounding crowd failed to listen to the officer’s commands stay back and remained confrontational. The crowds’ actions posed a safety risk to the officers attempting to deal with combative subjects, and taking persons into custody. Additional officers responded to the scene from the California Highway Patrol and Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office to assist in dispersing the crowd. Weed Police Department has become aware of videos on social media, as well as receiving messages via social media regarding the incident. One video appears to begin after the two arrests have been made, near the end of the altercation. The case, as it relates to parties involved in the physical altercation, is still under investigation. Weed Police Department administration will be reviewing the video that was posted on social media as well as body camera footage, in review of the incident.

We would like to advise the community about the automated social security scam. The message states the individual’s Social Security account, Social Security number, frand/or benefits are suspended, and that they should call a non-Social Security phone number to resolve the issue. When the individual calls this number, an unknown person pressures them into providing money or gift cards to resolve a fabricated issue, such as a warrant for the individuals’ arrest. Social Security does not solicit your personal information over the phone or by email, or request advance fees for services in the form of wire transfers or gift cards. If anyone pressures you to provide personal information or money over the phone, just hang up. If you suspect fraud, report it to the OIG on their website or by calling the Fraud Hotline at 1-800-269-0271. https://blog.ssa.gov/scam-awareness/
