Man to stand trial for alleged assault on officers

FAIRFIELD — A Vacaville man involved in a police shooting on the night of Jan. 30 on Leisure Town Road was ordered Monday to stand trial on felony charges that include a pair of charges of assaulting a police officer.

Antonio Vasquez, 25, and a pair of companions were allegedly ejected from the Hideaway Salon on Orange Drive just before midnight. With Vasquez behind the wheel of his Honda, the trio drove down Leisure Town Road near Walnut Road where a pair of Vacaville police officers were making a routine traffic stop.

The officers said Vasquez tried to run them down, causing them to both start shooting at the Honda. One of the passengers was wounded. The Honda crashed into a high-power utility box and a police car before stopping in the middle of Leisure Town Road.

Vasquez was ordered to return to court May 12 when dates for a jury trial may be scheduled.

    Looks like your superiors disciplined Jess Sullivan into using the word ''allegedely''. I bet the copy editor is giving Sullivan's articles a second look now too because of the complaints against Mr. Sullivan!. After all, we don't want a seller reporter like Mr. Sullivan to end up becoming his own civil libel / slander trial story, do we?

    I saw the guy at hideaway before he was kicked out. He was so drunk, he could barely stand. I bet you he couldn't even see where he was driving. He should be charged with felony DUI, not felony assault.
