Suspect rams K9 officer's car with stolen vehicle in Martinez
A suspect was arrested this afternoon in Martinez after he drove a stolen truck into a police officer's car, police said.
An officer conducted a traffic stop on the driver, identified as Daniel Gillaspy, at 1:14 p.m. near Robinson Street and Alhambra Avenue, but Gillaspy allegedly drove away as the officer approached.
