ATASCADERO — Two separate incidents occurred this week with two suspects who were taken into custody early this week by Atascadero police after resisting arrest.
The first incident occurred with Kejuan Guy Bynum, 25, was contacted early in the afternoon on Aug. 13 by Atascadero police. Bynum then fled on foot from the officers.
“A perimeter was established and he was taken into custody for an outstanding felony warrant.” Sgt. Jason Carr with the Atascadero Police Department said.
Bynum was arrested on suspicion of obstructing and resisting an officer and violating his parole. He was booked into jail at 12:06 p.m. and his bail was set at $5,000.
The second incident occurred after two probation officers identified a suspect who had been involved in a traffic collision involving a motorcycle. Atascadero Police had been looking for the suspect that was involved in that collision and fled the scene earlier in the day.
The suspect was identified by probation officers as Nicholas Ryan Livermore, 36.
Probation officers located him at the Circle K Gas Station on Morro Road in Atascadero. They approached him to make contact as he had violated the terms of his conditional release from state prison.
As they made contact, Livermore attempted to resist arrest and started to get physical in his resistance.
“Given the level of resistance the probation officers deployed a taster and got him in custody.” Robert Reyes, Assistant Chief Probation Officer, said. He added that this is a great example of what probation officers do for the community safety. “Our number one concern is safety...we care about community safety.”
Atascadero police arrived on scene and assisted probation with Livermore shortly after 8 p.m.
Livermore, was arrested by probation on Aug. 14 on suspicion of a felony, resisting and obstructing an officer and violating his post community release supervision.
He was booked into County Jail at 11:58 p.m. and his bond was set at $25,000.
