Greenfield officer assaulted by man with gun

GREENFIELD — An officer from the Greenfield Police Department was assaulted Sunday night while attempting to arrest a man who had a gun.

At about 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 27, Greenfield patrol officers contacted Uriel Medina near the intersection of Seventh Street and Oak Avenue.

According to a news release, police said Medina was a “known gang associate with a criminal history that included robbery.” As the officers attempted to detain Medina and conduct a pat-down search, he fled on his bicycle.

The first officer tased Medina, while the second officer ran after and tackled Medina.

“Medina fought and resisted the officers, and he was ultimately taken into custody,” police said.  

During the search of Medina, officers found a loaded .40 caliber Glock 27 “ghost gun” in his waistband.

Medina was evaluated and cleared by medical staff before being transported to the Monterey County Jail for firearm-related charges, resisting arrest and assault on a police officer.
