ONN – Oakland Police Safely Take Armed Sleeping Driver Into Custody At 100 Block Of East 12th Street

The Oakland Police sent this press release via email to Media:

Driver safely taken into custody and two firearms recovered-100 block of East 12th Street

On August 6, 2020, at 8:10 AM, in the 100 block of East 12th Street, Falck ambulance personnel flagged down Oakland Patrol Officers and advised them of a vehicle stopped in the roadway, and that the driver who was the sole occupant, was asleep with a firearm near his lap in plain view.

Officers attempted to establish communication with the non-responsive driver by using their patrol vehicle PA system and sounding the vehicles sirens/horn. All efforts to wake the driver did not have an effect. The armored vehicle responded as an added resource to protect our community in the immediate area and our officers.

Further attempts were made to awaken the driver. Ultimately, the driver awoke and surrendered to police. The driver was safely taken into custody. Officers recovered two firearms.

The Oakland Police Department would like to thank you Falck personnel. OPD continues our efforts to increase public safety in our community and reduce illegal possession of firearms.

Stay tuned.

This case is being prepared by investigators and will be presented to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office for review and charging. Once the case has been charged, the driver’s name will be released.

Note from Media and Oakland Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a ger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland Now site and -created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of , interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the and within seconds and not hours. Now, is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
