West Hollywood Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a man appearing to be under the influence of drugs this evening and ended up in a fight with the suspect. The man’s heart may have stopped after they hit him with a Taser multiple times in an attempt to subdue him.
The man was later identified as 27 year old Daniel Dubiel.
The incident unfolded around 7:10PM when numerous calls came in via 911 about a shirtless man running into traffic and almost being hit by cars around Santa Monica Blvd and Hayworth. The reports said that he appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance. At one point, the man was said to have laid down in the street and attempted to put his head under the wheel of an MTA bus.
An employee of the “Baby Blues” restaurant jumped into the situation to restrain the suspect in a headlock for the suspect’s own safety.
When the first deputies arrived on the scene to investigate, the man immediately began fighting with them. Numerous deputies began to respond with lights and sirens to assist. After several deputies and a sergeant at the scene could not subdue the man and the suspect continued to fight, the deputies deployed a Taser
After a few minutes of fighting, deputies broke out a taser and apparently got the man under control for a few moments. They radioed to inform other responding deputies that the fight had ended, however moments later the fight again resumed and the man and the Taser was deployed for a second time.
By this time, the fire department had arrived to the scene to provide medical assistance and they rolled in after Dubiel was finally handcuffed. The Sheriff’s department reported that he had lost consciousness at some point during the fight. Weho Daily readers on the scene reported that they were conducting CPR on the suspect.
Dubiel was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in unknown condition, accompanied by deputies. He remained in the hospital as of Sunday morning, according to the Sheriff’s station. He is looking at charges including resisting arrest and assault on a police officer.
UPDATE: The Sheriff’s Department informs us that the District Attorney filed a felony charge of resisting a peace officer against Dubiel based on the investigation by West Hollywood Station detectives the reports in this incident. The suspect admitted during interviews to being addicted to Methamphetamine and was delusional as a result of his intoxication. Two of the officers involved in the incident were injured as a result. The suspect was given an OK to book and was transported to and booked at West Hollywood Station, on April 18, 2011.
