A Lodi man was arrested after he attempted to flee from police officers in Downtown Lodi on Tuesday.
Officer Matthew Latino was patrolling in Downtown Lodi when he spotted 55-year-old Michael Simas near The Dancing Fox Winery & Bakery. Simas had multiple local warrants out for his arrest, said Cpl. Dale Eubanks of the Lodi Police Department.
As Latino approached the man, Simas began to run away.
Latino chased him on foot, and he eventually tackled Simas in the Bank of America around the corner from the bakery.
Simas suffered abrasions to both knees, his right elbow and left forearm. He also broke his left pinky finger, Eubanks said.
He was taken to Lodi Memorial Hospital for treatment and then released to police officers.
Simas was booked at the Lodi jail for his warrants as well as for resisting arrest.
