California Policeman Injured in Attempted Hit-and-Run

A police officer was hit by a car while responding to a domestic violence call on Tuesday (26DEC06) in Stockton, California. Police arrived at a home on Mariners Driver after reports that a man had become involved in a physical altercation with his wife and another person after dropping their children off. While police were at the scene, the man returned and attacked a police officer, causing other family members to become involved in the incident. Lanette Barretto, 43, tried to leave the scene and struck an officer with her car as she drove away. She was subsequently arrested for assault with a deadly weapon on an officer and for resisting arrest. Also arrested were Richard Barretto Jr., 27, for suspicion of spousal abuse, battery and battery on an officer and his father Richard Barretto, 44, on suspicion of obstructing justice.
