What began as a response to blaring music led to a local deputy's month on crutches.


On Sunday, May 3, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Deputy Jeffrey Woulfe responded to a complaint for loud music on the 18200 block of Danbury Avenue.


Upon arrival, Woulfe advised homeowner Oscar Murcia, 33, of the noise ordinance and when Murcia allegedly became uncooperative, a scuffle broke out. Murcia reportedly fell on Woulfe, broke his ankle, fled through the house and out the back door, into the neighbor's yard to escape.


Deputies allegedly found Murcia hiding on the ground next to a car where he was tasered and taken into custody. Woulfe required medical aid.


"He's at home resting right now and will eventually need surgery," department spokesperson Roxanne Walker said Tuesday.


Murcia was arrested on a charge of resisting an officer. Daniel Murcia, Oscar's brother, was arrested for making contact with Murcia after being told several times to stay away by a peace officer. Both men were taken to Victor Valley Jail.
