DPS officer assaulted, police vehicle stolen after traffic stop on pickup packed with suspected illegal aliens

You never know what you’ll get when you pull over a stolen pickup.

You never know what you get when you make a traffic stop/Thinkstock

You might get a tearful explanation, meek compliance or, as the Arizona Department of Pubic Safety found out Oct. 26, you could end up with a whole lot more.

A DPS traffic stop on a stolen truck uncovered a pickup packed with seven suspected illegal aliens, one of whom assaulted an officer then stole a police vehicle to flee into the desert, according to a DPS news release.

DPS was on the lookout for a stolen Dodge pickup, which was spotted around noon by DPS’s State Vehicle Theft Task Force.

A DPS detective called on Highway Patrol to help with the traffic stop, which did not go all that smoothly from the get-go when the stolen pickup drove into an unmarked DPS vehicle.

One of the undocumented aliens immediately fled, five remained on the scene and the seventh, the Dodge pickup’s driver, tried his own brand of escape.

The truck’s driver emerged from the stolen Dodge pickup, assaulted a DPS officer, and then hopped into a DPS vehicle, a Chevy Tahoe clearly marked as a police unit.

The guy drove the Tahoe west towards Phoenix but didn’t quite make it to the big city. He abandoned the stolen vehicle in the desert about 30 miles south of Phoenix.

The guy was taken into custody “a short time later,” with help in the pursuit from the Gila River Police Department and the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office.

While the release offered no further gritty details, we’re betting against meek compliance.

The six suspected UDAs, which included the driver, were turned over to Border Patrol while the seventh remains at large.

Note: Yes, the PC term for those entering the country without following the proper procedures has become “undocumented aliens,” a very cumbersome term that will be used, for the time being at least, interchangeably with “illegal aliens.”

What do you think?

Would you ever want to make a traffic stop around Arizona?

What is your preferred term for “undocumented aliens”?

    And yet, my hands were shaking so much trying to type immediately after I witnessed this human rights atrosity….pffft……. 

  3. Plain Ol' B.O. says:

    You are right. I changed the wording. I wrote this less than an hour after it happened, my mind racing faster than my fingers could type.

    I like the term “illegal aliens” because its accurate and a shorter word. Similar problem exists when I hear the term “African American” as opposed to saying “Black”.
    If you don’t want to be an “Illegal alien”, come here legally.
    signed,
    John Kennedy. A White Legal Alien. Not a British-American, just an American.

    • Rynski says:

      yes, i’ll agree ‘illegal aliens’ works best, john kennedy.
      if all the pc bs keeps up like it has been, english will soon be like french in the sense of using 556 different terms and words to describe something very simple.
      …and if it were going to get to all that, you’d have to not only use ‘british-american,’ as you noted, but you can’t be white – you’d have to be caucasian – but make sure it’s caucasian of european origian, to distinguish between caucuasion-african american, cacausia-asian, caucasian-hispanic, etc. to be wholly accurate – hahah

    This types of action is not reported as a crime committed by illegal aliens, so the breakdown does not reflect how dangerous Arizona has become on the highways because of trafficking.  Here in the P.R.S, a certain Senator is reported to have an organization campaigning for her using illegal aliens as the campaigners.  There were in a hurry to get up here to fill in. 

    • Rynski says:

      good point on the crime reporting, alan in kent wa – the news release’s headline didn’t even mention suspected illegal aliens, but rather just suspected auto thief.
      too funny on the illegal alien campaigners – i do hope they would vote for her after campaigning…hahahah

      I love Seattle!  I want Ivar’s Fried Oysters.  Then I want to feed some of my fries to the seagulls.  I’ll ride the ferry across the sound and back, then I’ll go up the Space Needle for a look around.  All in the comfortable surroundings of mostly decent people. 

      • fraser007 says:

        A land of liberal/leftist white people with no suntans who dont create crime. A leftist uptopia??

      • fraser007 says:

        Or maybe the illegals have not found Seattle yet? So you dont want to live in a land where they are.? What would the Three Sonorans think…shame on you!

      • leftfield says:

        It’s a nice place to visit.  They have a great leftist bookstore with all your favorites, fraser.  But when I leave here, I will be leaving for Central America.  I hope you feel better now.

        If you are taking up a collection for the plane flight sign me up for $4.00 to chip in! Dont forget the short wave radio to listen to Radio Havana from whatever basement you will be living in. Maybe after a few years the “Empire” will fall and you can come home.

      • Alan in Kent WA says:

        I like halibut and chips at Ivars.  The place for pan fried oysters is the Conway Pub in Conway neat Mount Vernon.

      • leftfield says:

        Yes, the halibut is great, too.  Next visit, I will look for the Conway.

        I would have thought the Red Snapper would be more to your taste.

    A truckload of 7 people who have stolen into our country would be 7 illegal aliens. If it’s more than one million people, and it is, they are illegal invaders!!!!!

  7. pmead says:

    Let’s just call them what they are,  CRIMINALS.

  8. leftfield says:

    Just plain “migrant” is the preferred term.  

     The truck’s driver emerged from the stolen Dodge pickup, assaulted a DPS officer, and then hopped into a DPS vehicle, a Chevy Tahoe clearly marked as a police unit.

    It’s best not to have any interaction with police if at all possible.  If it cannot be avoided, I recommend against assaulting them of stealing any of their toys.  They are very vindictive folks.  Just refuse to give them any information beyond your license, insurance and registration, which is all you are required to give.  Tell them repeatedly that you do not consent to any search.  The notion that you can outrun a radio or that you can attack the police and they will give up on arresting you is just silly.  It only makes them mad. 

    Take it from the good folks in Sheriff Little Joe’s domain:  it is better not to resist. Get yourself a good lawyer, then sue the SOB’s later for lots of money.

    Rynski, it is refreshing to know that someone cares enough to report on what is really happening in the trenches, the Citizen seems to be teeming with coddleblogs these days…quasi important exposes on Rodney Glassman’s nose hair and such…must be an election year.

    I would have thought the Red Snapper would be more to your taste.

    Good one, Max.  I hate to admit it, but this early in the morning it actually took me a minute to get it.

    Four dollars?!?!  Is that all that it is worth to you to get rid of me?  I’ll have to try harder.  But, you have given me a great idea: a fund drive to deport Lefty! 

    As to Cuba, they have direct flights to Havana from all over the world except in the US.  Sadly, though, they don’t have any more basements in Central America than they do in Arizona. They do have more beaches.
