Knife-wielding transient pleads not guilty to resisting officer
February 13, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A knife-wielding transient who police officers shot with a stun gun after he reportedly refused to move from the middle of a San Bruno street pleaded not guilty to assault with a deadly weapon.

Ricardo Jose Herdocia, 45, is also charged with brandishing a weapon to resist arrest. After entering his plea, Herdocia declined to waive his right to a speedy trial and was scheduled for trial April 1.

San Bruno police arrested Herdocia Jan. 12 after spotting him standing on San Mateo Avenue with a pocket knife held over his head. The officer twice told him he was blocking traffic and needed to move but Herdocia said he was “not doing anything wrong” and took a fighting stance, according to the District Attorneys’ Office.

When the officer tried opening his car door, Herdocia reportedly blocked it with his body and raised the knife near the open window in what the officer described as a “readily stabbing position,” prosecutors said.

The officer then drove forward 25 feet, stepped out of the car and, after Herdocia allegedly refused to drop the knife, shot him with a stun gun.

Herdocia is in custody on $50,000 bail.
