Trespassing and Felony Resisting Arrest


On Wednesday, August 31, 2016 at 11:25 a.m., the Ventura Police Department Command Center received a call from the victim who is the property manager at 333 N. Kalorama Drive. He advised dispatch that a subject was following him around, looking into cars and acting suspiciously. Two officers arrived and contacted the suspicious subject who was later identified as Andrew Hodges, 40, of Kern County.
Officers were investigating trespassing and speaking with Hodges who was lying about his name and why he was on the property. Officers detained and placed the 6’5” 240 pounds Hodges in handcuffs for their safety.  Officers began to walk Hodges to a patrol car to further investigate when Hodges began to fight with officers. Hodges kicked, hit and pushed at the two officers and all three fell to the ground. The Officers summoned emergency help on the radio and more officers arrived in order to gain control of Hodges. AMR and Ventura City Fire treated Hodges at the scene and Hodges was later transported to CMH for a medical clearance. Hodges had minor injuries from resisting arrest. No officers were injured during this incident. Officers were finally able to identify Hodges by his tattoos and learned he was on felony probation out of Kern County for assault with a deadly weapon. After Hodges was cleared he was later booked at Ventura County Jail for trespassing and felony resisting arrest.
