Fury Lane Incident

Image by Steve Terry

At 5:24 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21, the plaintive cries of a man could be heard in the parking lot of the shopping center at the corner of Jamacha Road and Fury Lane in Rancho San Diego.

“I didn’t do anything! I didn’t do anything! That hurts my back! My back is hurting!” Two sheriff’s deputies had subdued a shirtless man, possibly in his 20s, and had him handcuffed facedown on the asphalt. One deputy was crouched down with both knees pressing gently on the man, who was being agitated and uncooperative.

Within a minute or two they helped the now-handcuffed prisoner to his feet and put him in the back of one of the two patrol cars parked nearby. A deputy then motioned toward the front of the nearby Ralphs grocery store and beckoned a woman, perhaps the complainant, to approach them. She also seemed to be in her 20s, wore a tartan-patterned red-and-white sundress, and had a large tattoo on her back.

While she stood next to a burgundy '90s-era Mercury, the deputies spoke with her and took notes. The passenger-side door was damaged, as if it had been kicked, although the paint looked intact. Later, at 5:53 p.m., while the male suspect sat in the back of the patrol car, one of the deputies took a photograph of the woman’s face. A few moments later, the suspect, now calm and quiet, allowed the deputies to transfer him to the second patrol car, which drove off at a couple minutes before six o’clock.

What happened? Witnesses working at the Town & Country Car Wash said there had been loud yelling, and someone observed the woman, on foot, being chased by the man.

One witness said the cops “grabbed the guy” as he attempted to leave the shopping center by the Fury Lane exit next to the car wash. Another witness raised his foot and thrust it down to indicate the action a deputy needed to take to subdue the suspect.
