Synopsis: On 02-09-2013 at approximately 1215 hours Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched to a report of a trespasser on a piece of property in the 2300 block of Road K in Redwood Valley.

The reporting person advised the trespasser, identified as Kirtis Duane Brown, had been told to leave several times by the property owner, but failed to leave.

Deputies arrived and found Brown behind the residence next to his vehicle. Brown appeared to be under the influence of a stimulant and had been smoking marijuana.

While a search of his vehicle was being conducted by one of the Deputies, Brown fled on foot. The other two Deputies gave chase and tackled Brown, who continued resisting.

Brown was secured in handcuffs and while being walked to a patrol car continued to try and pull away. Brown was taken to the ground and secured in soft leg restraints.

A search of Brown’s vehicle revealed three methamphetamine smoking pipes.

Brown was transported and booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $25,000.00 bail.
