Vincent Salcedo (DOB 06-05-79) was charged with Assault on a Public Servant Causing Injury, Interference with Duties of a Public Servant, Resisting Arrest, and Public Intoxication after he interfered with an investigation and assaulted a San Angelo Police Officer Saturday morning.
Officers initially arrested V. Salcedo for Public Intoxication and interfering with a Hit and Run Crash Investigation they were conducting in the 200 block of W Avenue U on August 1, 2015, at about 12:30 a.m. involving a possible intoxicated driver who struck a parked trailer.
Officers first encountered Salcedo at the scene, standing in the roadway by a damaged trailer. Salcedo, who appeared to be intoxicated at the time, first denied knowledge of the incident but then told police an unknown person moved the trailer. Police later learned the alleged hit and run suspect, Daniel Salcedo, left the scene prior to their arrival.
During the investigation, V. Salcedo repeatedly interfered and verbally harassed Officers. Officers issued V. Salcedo verbal warnings to stop interfering but he disregarded the warnings, and at one point, used his body to physically block one officer who was trying to photograph the scene.
When Officers advised V. Salcedo he was under arrest for Interference, he became combative and resisted arrest. After a brief struggle, Salcedo was taken into custody but remained uncooperative and refused to stand or walk until he complained ants were biting him. One Officer who was trying to Move Salcedo to provide aid for his ant bites was kicked in the knee. The Officer was transported to a local hospital, treated for his injuries and released.
Police arrested Daniel Salcedo later that afternoon in an unrelated incident after he led police on a high-speed chase. Police Radar clocked a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe speeding more than 10 MPH over the posted speed limit in the 1000 block of Glenna Drive. The vehicle's driver, later identified as Daniel Salcedo, Jr. (DOB 04-29-73), refused to stop for a traffic stop and fled at speeds in excess of 85MPH. The pursuit ended at the Plaza Del Sol Apartment Complex, 4375 Oak Grove Blvd., when D. Salcedo exited his vehicle and ran. Officers located D. Salcedo inside a family member's apartment a short time later and took him into custody without incident.
D. Salcedo was charged with Evading in a Motor Vehicle and issued multiple traffic citations. D. Salcedo was not charged with the Hit and Run on Avenue U because the registered owner of the trailer declined to file a report.
