Violent Resisting of Officers with Injuries to Officers


On Saturday, May 28, 2016 at 9:12 a.m., the officers responded to a call for service of male walking in and out of traffic and yelling at passing motorists and pedestrians.  When officers arrived, they found the suspect on the center median of the roadway at Mills Road and Main Street, and began speaking with him.  During the conversation, the suspect, Kenneth Kerr, 58, attacked one of the officers.  The second officer assisted, and after a lengthy struggle in the roadway, the officers were able to arrest the suspect.
Both officers were injured during the incident and received treatment at the Ventura County Medical Center. One was cleared to return to duty, and the other officer’s injury prevented him from returning to work and will require additional time off while the injury heals.   The suspect received minor injuries and was also treated at Ventura County Medical Center.  He was later booked into Ventura County Jail for violently assaulting the officers.
