Jesse Tucker, 30, pleaded not guilty to nine felony counts and one misdemeanor count that arose from an hours-long standoff between deputies on Feb. 2, 2015.

The felony counts against Tucker include assault upon a peace officer or firefighter; resisting an executive officer; grand theft auto with a prior conviction; kidnapping; criminal threats; assault with a deadly weapon; driving or taking a vehicle without consent after a prior conviction; vandalism causing over $400 in damage; and fleeing a pursuing peace officer’s motor vehicle while driving, said Sarah Ardalani, spokeswoman for the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office.

The misdemeanor count against Tucker includes driving a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s license, Ardalani continued.

He is scheduled to appear in Dept. I of the San Fernando Superior Courthouse on Jan. 22, 2016 for a pretrial hearing.

Deputies began searching for Tucker on Feb. 2, 2015 around 8:46 a.m. after he allegedly stole a white F-150 truck from gardeners in Stevenson Ranch.

Tucker was trying to sell the stolen gardening equipment when a deputy spotted him in Newhall, witnesses said.
While deputies were trying to detain Tucker for questioning regarding the alleged car theft, he tried to run over a deputy, according to officials. The deputy then fired a round at the truck.
The truck was recovered after Tucker fled on foot.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help and McGrath schools were temporarily on lockdown as a precautionary measure, officials said.

K9 and helicopter units were called to the search.

Tucker has previously been convicted of vandalism, narcotics possession, illegal possession of drug paraphernalia, grand theft auto, felony theft, driving without a license and evading arrest, according to court records.

    Why dont you let the jury decide that!!Have you ever heard the term innocent until proved guilty.That is no longer the way it is any more.My bad i forgot the constitution and our god given rights dont mean anything these days.So why dont you keep your linch mob mentality to your self.This is America were everyone is considered innocent until proven guilty.And just so you know Just because the sheriffs says one thing doesnt make it true the gangs behind the badge have this thing called self preservation.Something most people dont see or understand until they fall victim to it.I just read an article that states law enforcement steals more money and cars and many other things that equaled 4 billon dollars last year under the color of law 98% of the people they victimized were never charged with a crime that money goes in to this thing called there monetary fund.If most people dont understand what this is it pays the paychecks to all law enforcement A direct conflict of interest!!So of course they wouldn’t abuse there power for self preservation would they?Do your own reasearch dont think you wont fall victim to this corruption chances are everyone will sooner or later.
