On Wednesday, April 27, 2016 at 1:12 p.m., the Ventura Police Department Command Center received a call from a relative of the suspect, later identified as Miru Kim, 28, stating he was making threats and wanted officers to check on him at his residence in the 5300 block of Gillespie Street. The caller was calling from a different location.
Officers arrived on scene, and contacted Kim inside of his residence. Kim was acting hostile towards officers and started fighting with them. In an attempt to subdue him, one officer deployed a Taser. During the struggle, Kim grabbed the officer’s Taser and tried to physically take it from the officer. Kim continued fighting until additional officers arrived and were able take him into custody without further incident. As a result of being Tasered, Kim was medically cleared at VCMC and then booked into the Ventura County Jail for felony resisting arrest. Two officers were slightly injured as a result of the incident, although remained on duty.
