Indecent exposure suspect puts up a fight

By From page A2 | October 24, 2013

An indecent-exposure suspect added to his woes Tuesday when he allegedly attacked the Yolo County sheriff’s deputy who was taking him into custody.

Pierre Lumsey, 29, was contacted at about 6 p.m. by deputies who had received reports of a man exposing himself on Clover Street in Esparto. Sheriff’s spokesman Mark Persons said Lumsey screamed and cursed at the officers, then tried to flee, and punched a deputy who tried to restrain him.

A struggle ensued during which Lumsey reportedly broke free, tried to grab the deputy’s Taser and ran into his house, prompting a call for additional police backup, Persons said.

Lumsey was taken into custody in the home’s garage after a CHP officer fired four beanbag rounds at him, followed by a further struggle between the suspect and deputies.

Lumsey was booked at the Yolo County Jail on suspicion of battery on a peace officer, indecent exposure and resisting arrest, Persons said. His bail was set at $50,000.
