On Dec. 16 at approximately 3:18 p.m., Santa Monica police officers assigned to the downtown area monitored a call regarding an assault with a deadly weapon.
The suspect was removing bottles from the trash and throwing them at passersby. A witness saw the suspect almost hit two women in the head with bottles. The described suspect was standing on the nearby corner at Ocean Avenue and Broadway yelling obscenities at passersby and waving his arms when officers arrived.
When the officers approached him, the suspect yelled at them and refused to drop unknown items in his hands. The suspect made a fist and was clenching his jaw. The officers grabbed control of one of the suspect’s arms to stop the suspect from throwing anything at them, but he continued to throw his arms violently toward the officers.
He continued to resist, kicking his legs. The suspect continued to resist the officers until he was taken to the ground and handcuffed.
Alfred Anthony Fells Jr., 43, homeless, had bail set at $10,500.
