Today, December 14, at approximately 7:30 a.m., HCSO deputies were conducting a traffic accident report in Blue Lake when they were alerted by a citizen about a vehicle
driving erratically on Taylor Avenue in Blue Lake.

The deputies located the vehicle on Taylor Avenue as the driver was walking away from it.  A deputy contacted the driver who was identified as Daniel Christie, 36-years-old, from McKinleyville.  The deputy ran a warrant check on Christie which revealed he was on probation with a search clause.

The deputy told Christie he was going to conduct a probation search.  Christie initially complied, but then changed his mind and ran off.  Both deputies pursued Christie and a struggle ensued.  The deputies utilized a Taser on Christie which had little effect; he continued to fight with them.

Christie was able to grab the Taser and struggled with the deputies over control of it.  Two citizens witnessed the deputies struggling with Christie and came to the deputies’ aid.  The citizens were able to assist the deputies with controlling, and handcuffing, Christie.

Christie admitted to the deputies that he had used methamphetamine– and that’s why he ran from them.

Christie was taken into custody for

  • Resisting arrest
  • Threatening a public official
  • Possession of burglary tools
  • Probation violation

Mr. Christie was transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where his bail was set at $50,000.

Yet another probationer running amok without supervision and testing?

Broken into genres, the levels measured just 2.6 […]

  • Why it's okay to call the TPP fast track fascism
    The effort to ram through a secret anti-democratic, anti-constitutional trade bill is another sign of America's silent drift towards fascism. Fascism is not Nazism, but rather a form of government as definable as, say, democracy. Here's how I described it almost a decade ago: Sam Smith, 2006 - In the first place, one needs to separate Hitler, Nazis […]
