Man Killed in Gold Chain RobberySTOCKTON—

A man was arrested Thursday afternoon for trying to run his girlfriend off the road, then fighting with responding officers, police say.

Dispatchers got a call from a 27-year-old woman who was driving along March Lane around 4 p.m., according to police logs. As she was driving, she says her boyfriend pulled up to her and tried to run her off the road.

The woman was able to call 911 and drive home, but the man – 24-year-old Lawrence Gonzalez – followed her.

Officers showed up and were able to detain the man. While sorting things out, police found that Gonzalez had an outstanding warrant out for his arrest. But as officers moved to arrest him, Gonzalez pulled away from one officer and pushed another officer to the ground.

Gonzalez then took off running, but was soon dropped by a Taser. Still, police say that Gonzalez continued to fight while on the ground. But, officers were able to take him into custody and book him for resisting arrest and domestic violence charges.

Police say that Gonzalez had threatened to shoot the woman, and a search of his car uncovered a handgun. That handgun has also been booked for safekeeping.
