The report of a man jumping on cars and hiding in a warehouse in the city’s south side led to the arrest of a 24-year-old Del Rio man. Alan Alderete, who listed his place of residence at the 500 block West Gibbs Street, was arrested on June 25 and charged with resisting arrest.
On June 25, at 1:38 a.m., Del Rio Police Department officers were dispatched to the 1300 block of Pierce Street, according to court documents.
Officer Jesse Arreola, according to a probable cause affidavit filed with the magistrate’s office, arrived to the site and made contact with a man, who stated that another man had been jumping on cars and was currently hiding inside a warehouse.
Officers talked over to the warehouse and observed the back of the warehouse was easily accessible as it had no solid walls, then they entered into the warehouse.
The affidavit stated officers heard a voice while searching the place. A man’s voice was asking who was there.
Court documents state the officers ordered the man to come out slowly showing his hands.
The man, according to the documents, became very aggressive saying he was going to call the police and became irrational.
The officers, documents state, identified themselves as police officers as the rambling from the man continued saying the peace officers were not real officers.
The affidavit states officers later spoke to witnesses at the scene, who identified Alderete as the man who had been jumping on cars. The officers told Alderete he was being charged with criminal mischief and was ordered to place his hands behind his back.
According to the documents Alderete pulled from the officers and began to resist arrest as he attempted to flee and pushed the officers off of him.
Alderete was arrested and charged with resisting arrest search or transport, a Class A Misdemeanor.
