Fight with violent parolee leaves Mt. Shasta officer with minor injuries

MT. SHASTA, Calif. — A parolee who violently attacked a Mt. Shasta police officer and then fought with a second responding officer was arrested after officers deployed less-lethal Taser devices and eventually wrestled him into submission earlier today, Sunday, July 4.

One of the officers suffered minor injuries during the attack, which happened during a trespassing and vandalism investigation stemming from an earlier incident at the Shasta Inn, at 1121 S Mount Shasta Boulevard.

The Shasta Inn has no relation to the Shasta MountInn Retreat & Spa, a nearby B&B whose owner was recently arrested on multiple charges related to sex crimes involving eight victims, which he reportedly committed while providing massage and other services at the location.
