Tracy Police Department SWAT officers helped arrest a 28-year-old man at the intersection of Central Parkway and West Arnaudo Boulevard in Mountain House following a felony car stop at 12:35 p.m. Monday, Aug. 20.

Alexandro Figueroa was arrested as he allegedly drove toward Tracy officers who were heading to his Mountain House residence to serve an arrest warrant for an incident that happened in Tracy the day before.

Figueroa is suspected of assaulting a Tracy police officer on Lowell Avenue on Sunday, Aug. 19, though the officer was not reportedly injured.

Tracy Lt. Greg Farmanian said Figueroa was wanted for ramming a police car in Tracy after officers responded to a domestic violence call. On Sunday, police chased the suspect from Tracy until he drove westbound on the eastbound side of Interstate 205, Farmanian said.

Figueroa was arrested without incident Monday and faces charges of assaulting an officer and evading police. He is expected to be arraigned in Manteca branch of San Joaquin County Superior Court at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22.

Tracy police received 161 calls for service Monday, Aug. 20. The following is a sample of those calls.

7:19 a.m.: Two men were seen taking recyclables and items from a truck on the 1800 block of Willow Creek Drive. The caller said he yelled at them, and they left in a small blue car.

12:54 p.m.: A 1984 Honda Accord was reported stolen on the 2600 block of Buthmann Avenue.

Hey pink underwear, Tracy Police will not give their life for me.

It takes the 20 minutes to show up when some one calls. I would be long dead if they ever tried to help me.

I arm myself and patrol my property and neighborhood. And I break no laws doing so. I don't need the useless Tracy PD.

Lt farmanian and the majority are really good officers here in tracy. However there are a few bad seeds on the force here in Tracy who don't have a clue. I actually have an officer who is borderline harrasing me on a daily basis who constantly drives in front of my office real slow looking inside, pulling u-turns in front of my office so i see him and has tried to falsify a story with family members to get to me. I wish all the officers here in tracy all the best...but if the shaved head officer in question keeps harrasing me he will find out just how powerful some small business owners in this town are and the connections some of us have to the best lawyers in this area. Like i said...the majority of the Tracy police officers are really good guys. But Mr. shaved head tracy officer is walking on the fence line of bad and good.

Thair are always bad seeds in every container so please don't judge th entire container because of th bad seeds it may contain.

Hopefully ya have brought her consarns ta th Chief ta at th very least give him an opportunity ta correct th problem. Be aware that if yer in yer house an this officer is doing his thang out in th street that ya don't have ta have permission frum him ta photograph th activity an a picture speaks better than a thousand words. In other words, documentation an speakin ta th Chief about it is yer best chance of gettin th matter quickly resolved.

If th harassment, as ya say, continues then yer in a better position ta take legal action ta have th matter resolved at a higher level an if everythang ya have said here is more than speculation on yer part correct a problem that affects us all.

Not sayin at all that it ain't happenin but sometimes what we may preceive ain't th case an thair are other reasons behind what yer observin.

In any case, th Chief should be able ta provide ya answers an if thair is a problem get th problem corrected.

Just mentionin it here in these comment sections ain't gonna resolve much of anythang.

Don't listen to Ornley.

When you file a complaint you do not see the chief.

You sit in the lobby and you wait for 30 minutes as the officer on the front desk secretly talks to someone.

Than a bald Lt. comes out and you tell this guy your story.

The LT. will attempt to be very intimidating, to try to discourage you from asking for a paper to file a complaint.

Ornley has no clue what she is talking about.

ChrisRoberts is right, I don't have a clue. It's exactly what I have done at least ten times over th last thirty years an have gotten positive results EVERY time.

beepbeepcomingthrough, listen to what Ornley has to say.

Here's why:

California Code of Civil Procedures 47.5 states;

"Notwithstanding Section 47, a peace officer may bring an action for defamation against an individual who has filed a complaint with that officer's employing agency alleging misconduct, criminal conduct, or incompetence, if that complaint is false, the complaint was made with knowledge that it was false and that it was made with spite, hatred, or ill will. Knowledge that the complaint was false may be proved by a showing that the complainant had no reasonable grounds to believe the statement was true and that the complainant exhibited a reckless disregard for ascertaining the truth."

It was around this time last year maybe, when a Tracy Police Officer who was fighting for his life over some idiot running down the street in his underwear. The officer had to punch his lights out, the idiots picture was in the Tracy Press looking like he ran into a Mack truck. I think Tracy Police can hold their own pretty good 1 on 1.

Funny thing when someone gets a justified royal beat down by the cops all of the cry babies come out and protest and say just how he/she was just turning their stupid meaningless life around.

Question, since when is it funny reading about a cop getting attacked, and do you happen to be one of these cats who thinks there's not someone out there who can knock you on your backside?

Just because someone is a cop or a Marine or whatever type of highly trained individual in combat or self defense, there's always someone better. Do you hereby proclaim yourself baddest man on the planet?

Just wondering.

If Figueroa was that tougb why did he ram the officer with a car? If he is as tough as you say he shod have gotten out of the car and fought like a man, not like a little coward who bides behind a car.

Yea, I thought our cops were supposed to have physical fitness tests.

Makes you wonder if these physical fitness tests are just remedial fitness tests that they give out of shape middle schoolers.

Hey knucklehead,

Your right, Tracy police will NEVER be one on one. That's not smart or effective law enforcement. Cause two, three or four will take you into custody without injuring you or the officer. When it's one on one, your chances of going away on a stretcher are increased. Good luck, cell soldier.

Scary, a stretcher really? Have you seen some of the rollie-pollie's we have for cops in this town...???
