At approximately 11:40 pm Wednesday, the Oakley Police Department responded to the downtown area on a report of a male evading bounty hunters within the city of Oakley.
According to police, Larry Davis, a 43-year-old male from Sacramento, was being tracked down by bounty hunters after being wanted on multiple warrants for domestic violence, assault with a deadly weapon, torture and false imprisonment.
Oakley Police arrived on scene and assisted in the search where they located Davis on a roof when he began jumping from roof to roof in an attempt to flee from bounty hunters and officers. Eventually, he ended up at 519 3rd Street.
He proceeded to run into a basement where a short time later he lit a fire inside the home—it was extinguished before it got out of control.
According to Chief Paul Beard, Davis was non-compliant and a sheriff K9 was deployed where Davis struck the K9 with an object, possibly a broom or similar object. He then entered underneath the home where he damaged the sewage line and plumbing to the home which exposed officers.
After approximately 90-minutes, he was physically removed and taken into custody.
Beard said there were no other injuries and no update on the K9 was available. Davis was transported to a local hospital and will then be transported to MDF for multiple additional charges.
