Confrontation at La Mirada home leaves suspect, two deputies hospitalized


LA MIRADA (CNS) – A man in his 30s was hospitalized this morning following a fight with two Orange County sheriff’s deputies who suffered moderate injuries as they served a restraining order at a home in La Mirada.

Deputies responded at 8:40 p.m. Monday to a call of a family disturbance and to serve the order on the man who lives at the home in the 8100 block of Barrington Lane, near Fairhope Drive, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Shortly after deputies arrived, the man confronted them and the deputies used physical force to subdue him, OCSD spokeswoman Carrie Braun said.

The suspect and deputies were taken to a hospital where the suspect was sedated and the deputies were treated for their injuries, the sheriff’s department said.

Neither the name of the suspect nor the extent of his injuries was immediately disclosed.

The OCSD patrols the portion of La Mirada where the incident occurred, Braun said.
