A Lodi man reached for an officer's gun while resisting arrest on Tuesday evening, police said.

Trevon Parker, 23, was walking near the Lodi Avenue and Garfield Street intersection when a Lodi police officer saw him, according to Lt. Fernando Martinez. The officer knew Parker had a warrant out for his arrest and made an attempt to detain him.

Parker fled on foot when the officer approached, said police. There was a short pursuit, but the officer was able to grab Parker as he tried to hop a fence, according to police. Parker then turned on the officer and made an attempt to grab his gun from the holster, Martinez said.

The pair got into a short fight, but the officer was able to subdue and arrest him, police said.

Parker was taken into custody on suspicion of resisting arrest, battery of an officer and prowling, said Martinez.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
