domestic battery, robbery, terrorist threats, and resisting or delaying an officer following a three-hour
On August 14, 2012 at 9:09 p.m., Sergeant Kenny Kushner observed Perrie standing on a corner at the
intersection of Indio Muerto Street and Salinas Street. Earlier in the day Perrie had failed to appear in
court for a preliminary hearing and as a result a $50,000.00 felony warrant for domestic battery had
been issued for his arrest. When Sergeant Kushner contacted Perrie in an attempt to arrest him Perrie
fled, running into the apartment at 218 S. Salinas Street #6, where he resides with his mother.

for Perrie was obtained for robbery, terrorist threats, and resisting or delaying an officer. Additionally, a
search warrant was obtained for the premise. At 11:59 p.m., following several verbal commands for
Perrie to exit, officers forced entry into the apartment. A light and sound diversionary device, also
known as a flash-bang, was deployed outside of Perrie's bedroom window as officers breached the front
door of the apartment. Inside they found that Perrie had barricaded himself in his bedroom, tying the
door with rope and blocking it with furniture.
The bedroom door was breached with a battering ram and once open, Perrie was given warnings to
surrender or else a police canine would be sent into his room. Perrie refused to come out and
