Upset with traffic, DUI driver runs roadblock, hits Redding police cadet

REDDING, Calif. — Authorities say a man became so enraged with Redding PD community service officers and a young cadet manning a traffic collision-related roadblock that he attempted to bypass the closure, hitting the cadet in the process this afternoon, Saturday, May 29.

He then fled the scene of the non-injury collision, but was later located and arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and DUI after fleeing the scene

Redding Police Sgt. Sheldon has since said that police CSOs and the cadet had responded to the intersection of North Point Dr. and Redwood Boulevard to assist officers investigating a minor traffic collision.

While officials worked at the scene they called for the temporary closure of the roadway, with community service officers and the cadet handling the collision investigation and providing traffic control.

“A vehicle arrived at the road closure and the passenger, 27-year-old, Bryce Webb became upset with the closure, Sheldon explained. After arguing with the CSOs and cadet, Webb got into the driver’s seat of the vehicle he had been in and drove past the roadblock.

“Webb accelerated toward the police cadet,” Sheldon continued. Although he then slammed on his brakes and the cadet attempted to jump out of the way, the young, future officer was struck by the vehicle’s front bumper.

“The cadet was uninjured and Webb fled the scene,” said the Sergeant.

Officers who responded to the hit and run soon located Webb at his nearby residence, where they ultimately arrested him for assault with a deadly weapon and DUI. He was later booked into the Shasta County Jail in Redding, where he remains in custody in lieu of $25,000 bail or bond.
