This man was arrested after police received reports a man was running around shirtless, jumping fences, destroying property, and unlawfully barging into residence. Pasco Pd officer Raul Cavazos arrived and found Mario Diaz in the area shirtless. Diaz refused to comply to orders from the officer allegedly leading to a chase and then a struggle and fight with the officer according to the Pasco Pd Facebook page.
