Even the dinner breaks are intense on this beat! I was headed to El Grullence for a chicken burrito shortly afer 8 p.m. when we received word that a police officer and a parolee had been hit by a car while fighting in the middle of Miner Avenue near North San Joaquin Street. Fortunately, I was only a few blocks away and there was still time to get the story in the paper. Never did make it to El Grullence, though. Police identified the officer as Houston Sensabaugh, a member of the department’s community response team. The suspect, 35-year-old Jessie Coley, was arrested on suspicion of battery, resisting arrest and violating his parole, authorities said. You can read more about it here.
