A 23-year-old suspect was arrested on April 16 after he assaulted two deputies from the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station who responded to reports of a man running in and out of traffic in the 7900 block of Santa Monica Blvd.
The incident occurred around 8:30 a.m. in front of the Baby Blues Restaurant. Deputies arrived to find an employee of Baby Blues restraining the suspect, Daniel Dubiel, who witnesses said was running into the street and at one point had attempted to place his head under a bus tire. Upon being contacted by deputies, Dubiel allegedly remained combative and an altercation ensued. A deputy and sergeant attempted to force the suspect to the ground, but he allegedly continued to fight, and the deputies had to twice deploy a Taser. This allowed deputies to overcome and handcuff Dubiel, who then lost consciousness. He was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was treated and released for booking. The two deputies received minor injuries during the altercation.
According to investigators, Dubiel admitted during interviews to being addicted to methamphetamine and was allegedly delusional as a result of his intoxication.
Dubiel has been charged with one felony count of resisting a peace officer.
