00:02:37I'm one of the DUI Task Force cars, and a traffic homicide investigator with the unit as well.
00:02:42And, basically, what we're doing is hitting hot spots where we have noticed a spike in violent crimes.
00:02:53Uh, right now, we're trying to stop a vehicle who is running stop signs.
00:02:57Um, we lit him up and now he's taking off.

00:03:52Um, he's riding on the rim.
00:03:54They're three, four deep in the car, which means there's multiple occupants.

00:04:08He's gonna have to slow down.
00:04:15He's crossing multiple lanes.
00:04:16He's on three tires.
00:04:19Um... his right front is completely gone.
00:04:22He's on a rim.

00:04:26(sirens wailing) Tango 33, looks like he's about to lose the, uh, right rear, as well.
00:04:34His speeds are slowing considerably.
00:04:36We're down to about 70 miles hour.
00:04:38Uh, he's trying to go faster, but he just can't.
00:04:41Looks like that back tire is going to be coming off.
00:04:46And it's sparking even worse now.
00:04:48Uh, speeds are still at-- holding pretty steady now, about 70 miles an hour.
00:04:52We are, um, still southbound.

00:13:24This address, we've had a lot of problems over there.
00:13:28We've had some weapons calls.
00:13:29It usually gets pretty out of hand, so we're gonna go back up this other officer and figure out what's going on.
00:13:37It's a complex of several small apartment-type houses.
00:13:42>> ROBERSON: They're in a argument of some kind.

00:14:16My brother-in-law attacked him with a stick!
00:14:19>> No, I didn't.
00:14:20I was sitting in the room where y'all fought.
00:14:22Sir, that's all I'm trying...
00:14:24And he started screaming, "Get out of the house!" And I...
00:14:28>> ROBERSON: Behind you, Devin!

00:15:29And I got up, and he started to jump on me.
00:15:31And he pushed me back, and I landed on the wall.
00:15:34>> CANTWELL: Okay.
00:15:34>> And when I landed on the wall, I just reached down and grabbed the first thing I could 'cause he was raving crazy.

00:15:59>> CANTWELL: Okay.
00:15:59>> God, he scared me to death like he's gonna kill me.
00:16:01I'm 55. He knows I'm in bad health.
00:16:04He shouldn't be jumping on me like that.
00:16:05>> Sir, you know me and you know I'm telling the truth.
00:16:08>> You hurt my back real bad, man, when you pushed me.
00:16:10>> No, I didn't push you nowhere, brother.

00:16:35And I walk out, and these two are on top of each other.
00:16:38And I said, "Okay, forget it." I went to the neighbor's house right over here and called y'all.
00:16:43>> CANTWELL: And called the police, okay.
00:16:44>> Yes, sir.
00:16:45>> CANTWELL: But did you actually see Joe attack your husband with a stick?

00:19:14>> CANTWELL: Okay, he told me about the Atomic Dove game.
00:19:17>> And I do that to stay out of their hair when we're out of work.

00:19:34>> CANTWELL: Let me explain something to you.
00:19:35When he pushes you back, and he's done pushing you, you can't pick something up and go back and whale on him for a while.
00:19:41Probably the best thing you could have done was to get away from him and go call us to handle it.
00:19:45That's why y'all are both going to jail tonight for mutual combat.

00:22:08>> Sergeant jeff helfrich: Yeah, I think I'd break down the job percentage-wise, five percent that's action-packed-- emergency type calls, homicides and shootings; 15 percent high-incidence occurrence-- domestic violence, fights, that type of stuff; and the rest of it's what you consider routine police work-- problem-solving, trying to make the community a better place to live for the people that are here.
00:22:25(indistinct radio communication) >> (over radio): ...a group assaulted the manager of their apartment.
00:22:31>> HELFRICH: Responding to a disturbance call where an apartment manager is being assaulted.
00:22:37This is secondhand information, coming from a tow truck driver that's out there.
00:22:41So we're responding to see exactly if there's a fight or not.
00:22:45Sometimes you end up with a fight, and sometimes it's just a bunch of yelling and screaming.
00:22:48>> (over radio): Tow driver is on-scene.
00:22:50They are telling dispatch that there's about ten people involved.
00:22:53It's physical, but no weapons at this time.
00:22:55>> HELFRICH: 9-14 arriving.
00:22:57(indistinct radio transmission) >> (over radio): Let me get an ETA for you.
00:23:06>> HELFRICH: Hi.
00:23:07>> Those are the customers with the vehicle, they're walking away right now, but they were all brawling with the manager, and other people out here in the parking lot were pulling each other's hair and starting big fights, so I thought it'd be appropriate to call you guys.
00:23:16>> HELFRICH: Okay.
00:23:17Supposedly, he's involved.
00:23:17That's the guy, one of the guys down there.
00:23:19The two walking away.
00:23:20>> There's a guy and woman down there walking...
00:23:21>> HELFRICH: Want to grab them?
00:23:22They're involved.
00:23:25Who got assaulted?
00:23:26>> I called you guys.
00:23:27>> HELFRICH: Okay, who was assaulted?
00:23:29>> Me. She just hit me in my mouth... because their car got towed.
00:23:32>> HELFRICH: Who's... who hit you, who was it?
00:23:33>> She doesn't even live here.
00:23:36Come on.
00:23:37>> Let me catch my breath.
00:23:38>> HELFRICH: Okay, okay.
00:23:39>> I was in my house sleeping with my kids; I was laying down with my kids and my nephew.
00:23:42I heard boom-boom-boom-boom!
00:23:44"Open the door, bitch!" I'm, like, "What?!" Open my door.
00:23:48"Bitch, you got our car towed!" First of all, I didn't get the car towed.
00:23:52I do the towing, but they come whenever they feel like coming.
00:23:55>> HELFRICH: Okay.
00:23:56>> "Bring your ass outside!
00:23:57You gonna get your ass whupped." I go, I tell Josh...
00:23:59>> HELFRICH: Can you stay here for a second, so we can get a statement from each of you two?
00:24:02>> ...the other guy that lives down in 15, "You need to get her away from my apartment, or I'm calling the police." >> HELFRICH: Okay.
00:24:07>> I can show you... tell you...
00:24:08>> HELFRICH: Fair enough, fair enough.
00:24:09>> I'm 24.
00:24:10I tell them, "You need to get our off of my... my, um, steps... right now." >> HELFRICH: Hey, Leslie, I've got the victim here.
00:24:16Albert's got the suspect down there... or suspects.
00:24:19>> She doesn't even live here.
00:24:21>> HELFRICH: Okay, okay.
00:24:22>> Okay, so I come downstairs to talk to them.
00:24:24She's still in my face talking crap.
00:24:27"You bitch, da-da-da.
00:24:28You got... That's my brother!" I'm, like, "Okay, I can tell you're intoxicated," you know what I'm saying, "Leave me alone." She starts screaming she gonna hit me.
00:24:35I said, "You hit me, I'm gonna defend myself, but do not touch me.
00:24:39I didn't call the tow truck people, okay?
00:24:42They come when they feel like it.
00:24:44Get out of my face." >> HELFRICH: Okay.
00:24:45>> "You deal with the tow truck, people," okay?
00:24:47"They said apartment seven..." They're gonna say apartment seven, 'cause I'm the on-site manager.
00:24:51They're gonna say my apartment, period, okay?
00:24:53They're gonna do that, regardless.
00:24:55She don't want to hear it.
00:24:56She comes up to me.
00:24:57I said, "Do not hit me." She hit me in my lip, right here.
00:24:59>> HELFRICH: Okay, all right, let me see.
00:25:01>> In my lip.
00:25:02>> HELFRICH: Yep, I see the blood.
00:25:03>> Exactly. She hit me in my lip, and I hit her back.
00:25:06And she pulled my hair; she yanked all my hair right here.
00:25:08>> HELFRICH: Can you guys, like, go back there while I'm doing this? Thank you.
00:25:11>> She is my witness that saw her hit me first.
00:25:13>> HELFRICH: Okay, that's fine.
00:25:14>> She hit me in my lip.
00:25:15She starts pulling my hair.
00:25:16We started fighting, I'm not gonna lie.
00:25:18We got apart, her boyfriend, whoever he is to her, pulled her away.
00:25:24I let her go.
00:25:25My friends is pulling me away.
00:25:27She runs up again and wants to fight again some more.
00:25:29She pulls my hair like this.
00:25:31I'm going like this to let my hair go.
00:25:33I pulled her hair.
00:25:34He comes again to pull her hair away, and I said, "Call the police right now," to my nephew.
00:25:38>> HELFRICH: Just hang out right here for me, okay?
00:25:40You mind standing by my police car real quick? Thanks.
00:25:42Okay, what did you see what was going on tonight?
00:25:44>> Um, I saw the girl with the the curly hair run up to her door, bang on her door, tell her to come outside.
00:25:49She got to fussing with her about the car being towed.
00:25:52>> HELFRICH: Okay.
00:25:52>> And, uh, she ran up on her and swung on her, hit her in her face.
00:25:56>> HELFRICH: So did she...
00:25:57>> And then they started tussling.
00:25:58>> HELFRICH: Yeah, they... so she goes against her, she takes the first swing, connects, they start tussling, the hair-grabbing and all that stuff goes on.
00:26:03>> Yes.
00:26:04>> HELFRICH: Okay. We need you to hang out while my... the primary officer, uh, is gonna...
00:26:07will be dealing with this, we'll take care of that, and then we'll get your statement from you, then we'll clear everything else up, too, okay?
00:26:13All right, thank you.
00:26:15Hi. I'm Sergeant Helfrich.
00:26:16I'm just trying to figure out what's going on.
00:26:18>> Well, I came to visit them.
00:26:20So we park in the visitors' section, went to go get my little brother to take him home.
00:26:24>> HELFRICH: Mm-hmm.
00:26:25>> When we came back out and the tow truck was hooked to the Jeep.
00:26:28And we're wondering why-- it's not 10:00 yet; we parked straight in; no problems, okay?
00:26:34They didn't have a reason why.
00:26:35They kept towing him.
00:26:36Well, somebody said something about number seven.
00:26:39Number seven came out and
