PASADENA — An armed man wanted on an outstanding drug warrant was taken into custody following a foot pursuit, where no one was injured, a police lieutenant said Saturday.
Officers were dispatched a little after 4:35 p.m. Friday to contact Brandon Green, 29, on an outstanding drug warrant. When officers approached the location on foot, Green took off running, said Pasadena Police Lt. Jessie Carrillo.
“During the foot chase, the suspect produced a handgun which led an officer to fire shots,” Carrillo said.
“Though uninjured, the suspect fell to the ground and was taken into custody without incident.”
A firearm was recovered at the scene and no injuries were reported, he said.
Green, a resident of Pasadena, was arrested on suspicion of assault on a peace officer and the outstanding warrant. He was being held in lieu of $126,000 bail.
Pasadena police asked anyone with information regarding the incident to call them at 626-744-4241.
