On January 2, 2012, at about 7:43 p.m., Oxnard police officers were on scene of a traffic collision that occurred at the intersection of Ventura Road and Ninth Street.  As the officers were controlling traffic, a black Nissan Altima, driven by Juan Martinez, entered the scene traveling westbound on Ninth Street. One of the officers attempted to stop the Nissan but Martinez disobeyed the orders given by the officer. Martinez made a right turn onto Ventura Road and came to a stop as the officer approached the car. When the officer contacted Martinez, he suspected that Martinez was driving while under the influence of alcohol. As the officer’s contact with Martinez continued, Martinez suddenly sped away causing injury to the officer’s foot. 
 
Responding officers located the Nissan as it fled the scene and Martinez was subsequently taken into custody.  At the time of this incident, there was an unrestrained five year old child seated in the back seat of the car.
 
The injured officer was transported to St. John’s Hospital and treated for minor injuries.        
 
Martinez was booked into Ventura County Jail on charges of assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, child endangerment and driving under the influence of alcohol. 
 
The investigation is continuing.
