Five arrested in confrontation with deputies at Carson City party
Five people were arrested late Saturday when a party at a home of an alleged gang member on Curry Street turned into a confrontation with deputies.
According to a Carson City Sheriff’s Office arrest report:
Victor Victorio, 23, Otoniel Victorio-Acevedo, 37, both of Carson City, and Jose Ezequial Victorio, 35, of Dayton, were arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest and battery of a police officer.
Two others, a 21-year-old Carson City man and a 27-year-old Carson City woman, were arrested on misdemeanor obstructing-an-officer charges.
Carson City police responded to a complaint of noise and the smell of marijuana at 10:54 p.m.
“I recognized the residence as the home of Victor Victorio, a well known and active Lima Street local gang member,” wrote deputy Jason Bueno in his report. Bueno said he’d been advised by other deputies that Victor had been in several fights with rival gang members throughout the week, including one earlier that evening.
Also according to the report:
Deputies were met with an angry crowd of about 50 people, which included gang members and children.
Party-goers, many of whom began videotaping the scene, shouted profanities.
Bueno reported that it quickly became a dangerous situation for Sgt. Daniel Gonzales and him.
“I entered the yard and placed myself between the large group and Sgt. Gonzales,” Bueno said. “While doing this, I subjected myself to the full brunt of more than a dozen enraged and intoxicated people. At one point, two subjects took the lead role in the threats and pushing. They were later identified at Jose Victorio and Otoniel Victorio-Acevedo, who are Victor’s older brothers.”
Bueno said the violence escalated into shoving, taunting and name calling. Douglas County Sheriff’s Office units responded, and more Carson City deputies showed up.
“Otoniel body checked me with his chest and put his arm over my right shoulder as if he were going to grab me around the neck as he did so,” Bueno wrote. “The crowd remained unruly, and I recalled thinking the situation was nearing a riot.”
As Bueno attempted to arrest another of Victor’s brothers, he reported, “Victor came from behind me and grabbed me and pulled me off. I recall being slammed into by Victor and possibly other subjects. I then landed several baton strikes on Victor’s side and back.”
Bail for each of the Victorio brothers arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest and battery of a police officer was set at $2,937.
Bail for the remaining two was set at $407 each.
