Around 1 am this morning, LLCS covered a dangerous situation occurring at a traffic stop near 84th & Navajo Trail.
According to LPD, a female ran up to the officer’s cruiser and jumped in the passenger seat. She was screaming, bleeding from the face, and said she needed help. She reported being assaulted by her boyfriend, who was in the vehicle behind the officer’s cruiser. The vehicle then fled the area.
As the officer was collecting information, the vehicle came back to the traffic stop. 22-year-old Sokito Taylor approached the officer’s cruiser and refused to comply with commands. A short struggle ensued, and Taylor broke free. He then threw a glass bottle at the officer, causing the officer to deploy his taser.
Taylor was arrested for Domestic Assault, Strangulation, Resisting Arrest, Failure to Comply, Vandalism, and Disturbing the Peace.
Both the woman and the suspect were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
