On September 5, 2011, at 3:27 p.m., Redding Police Officer Brian Torum was on routine patrol in the area of Hilltop Drive. Officer Torum observed a black 1993 Honda Accord traveling northbound on Hilltop Drive. A routine license plate check revealed the vehicle had been reported stolen.
Officer Torum followed the vehicle to the intersection of Azalea Avenue and Iris Drive, where the driver voluntarily pulled over. The driver, Tyler Daniel Buckley, 28 years, of Foresthill CA, initially complied with Officer Torum. As additional officers arrived in the area, Buckley exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Officers used a taser and several strikes from police batons to subdue Buckley and take him into custody.
Buckley was later booked into the Shasta County Jail on suspicion of vehicle theft, possession of stolen property, resisting arrest and two felony warrants out of Placer County.
