Ventura Sheriff Patrol Car Rammed And Overturned By SUV


Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere   
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst   
Are full of passionate intensity.

The Sheriff’s office says that a patrol sergeant was on duty at about 2AM on Los Angeles Avenue when, in what it is calling an “unprovoked attacked” he was rammed twice from behind, forcing the SUV to overturn. 

The sergeant was able to relay to dispatchers which direction the suspect was last seen heading and, as a result, a second deputy was able to find the suspect on eastbound Highway 126. The officer gave chase, which ultimately ended in a crash, and the suspect was taken into custody. 

Capt. Eric Buschow with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department told KEYT: “As the sergeant accelerated his patrol vehicle the suspect accelerated as well and then rammed into the back of the sergeant’s vehicle a second time. That action spun the patrol car around and caused it to flip onto its side.”

The deputy had minor injuries and the suspect was identified as 29 year old Frankie Avalos. He was charged with suspicion of attempted murder of a police officer.


  1. Avalos’ bail was set at over $1 mil. His bail automatically doubled as a result of prior charges and convictions. He was also driving under the influence of drugs at the time.
