On 12-27-2020 the California Highway Patrol received a 911 phone call from someone at a residence located in the 26000 block of Sherwood Road in Willits, California.

The caller reported Kevin Pike was out of control and destroying items at the location.  At about 11:45 AM Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived and were invited inside the residence by the caller.

Deputies noticed numerous items had been damaged inside the residence.

Almost immediately both Deputies were confronted by Kevin Pike, who they knew from prior contacts.

Pike was verbally abusive towards the Deputies as he came at them and began physically attacking them.

During the attack, Pike slammed a screen door into both Deputies and also spit on them.  During a subsequent struggle, they all then fell to the ground just outside the front door where both Deputies sustained visible injuries.

Both Deputies did not require medical treatment and were able to take Pike into custody. 

Pike was arrested for assault causing injury (243(D) PC), threatening or using violence against a Peace Officer (69 PC), and resist or delaying a Peace Officer in the performance of their duties (148(A) PC).

Pike was booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $15,000.00 bail.
