• Arrest for discharging weapon, drunk in public

    On March 15 at approximately 1:34 a.m., Pacific Grove Police received a report of a subject firing a handgun in the parking lot of the 8 Arkwright Ct. apartment complex. The reporting party described four subjects in the area with one of the subjects firing an unknown type of handgun. Due to the possibility of confronting up to four subjects with one of them being armed, and given the size of the apartment complex, PGPD requested assistance from the Monterey Police department and Monterey County Sheriff’s Department.
    Shortly after the officers’ arrival, a male subject holding a handgun at his side walked out of the apartment complex. He refused to follow orders given by the officers and walked back into the parking lot area of the complex where he discarded an object.
    The subject continued to refuse to follow orders. He was subdued by officers and taken into custody without injury. Officers recovered a BB gun in the carport area.
    The subject was identified as Pascacio Trinidad Ruiz, a 34-year-old resident of Pacific Grove. Trinidad Ruiz was charged with negligent display of an imitation handgun, discharging a BB gun in a reckless manner, public intoxication, and resisting/obstructing a peace officer. A second subject, identified as Jimmy Arriola Marroquin, a 26-year-old resident of Pacific Grove, was arrested for public intoxication.
