San Andreas, CA — 29 year old Michael Thompson is now calling the Calaveras County Jail home.
Thompson was released from a Modesto hospital where he was treated for wounds suffered May 27th in an altercation with two Sheriff’s deputies in Railroad Flat. One of the deputies, Rick Dibasilio, suffered a shoulder wound when he was hit by a richocheting bullet from his partner.
Calaveras County Sheriff Dennis Downum learned just today that toxicology tests confirmed that Thompson was under the influence of methamphetamine when he assaulted one of the deputies with his vehicle.
Thompson has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon with an instrument other than a firearm and possession of a stolen vehicle. He was scheduled to be arraigned this afternoon.
