Police Release Video of Brawl Involving San Joaquin Supervisor
Stockton police are asking for the public’s help identifying a man who injured San Joaquin County Supervisor Tom Patti during a Feb. 2 melee on California St. in downtown Stockton.
Patti says he was on his way to a friend’s house when he witnessed a woman being assailed in a vehicle and decided to intervene. He and the attacker then traded blows that left Patti with a broken nose, damaged eye socket, and other visible facial injuries.
Police have now released surveillance video of the brawl, available here. It shows Patti (dressed in a white shirt) approaching the vehicle which is stopped in the middle of the street. A fight with an unidentified individual then ensues.
Police say they released the video to help identify the suspect.
“I can confirm that (Patti) is the victim in this incident,” Officer Joe Silva told The Record on Wednesday. “This is still an open investigation.”
