City College police required to use force, incident caught on video

SDCCD police officers arrested a suspect with three outstanding warrants in the AH/BT quad.


 By Jonny Rico, Editor-in-Chief

San Diego City College student Ryan Gonzalez was walking down the stairs to the AH/BT quad to leave campus on April 3 when he noticed a police vehicle roll onto campus. 

Gonzalez said he saw two officers approached a man and put him into handcuffs before the man fell to the ground.  

“This was a traumatic event right in the middle of our school for all the students walking by to see,” wrote Gonzalez in an email to City Times detailing what he witnessed. 

The incident, which happened at 5:44 p.m. according to the police report, was recorded by Gonzalez, co-founder of the City College organization Urban Scholars Union and known to friends as Ryan Flaco Rising. He later shared it publicly on his Facebook profile.

The arrest was also recorded on body cameras worn by the officers, according to San Diego Community College District Police lieutenant Louis Zizzo. 

SDCCD officers arrested Gentry Gomez, 32, who had three outstanding warrants against him for drug related offenses, according to Zizzo.

City College pitcher faces former team

Only a few more contests are left for the Knights' spring sports teams


By Sonny Garibay, Sports Editor

Chase Martinez did not sleep much before his start against Palomar College on Saturday. The game weighed heavily on his mind.

“Chase was cut from Palomar,” explained San Diego City College baseball coach Chris Brown. “He had something to prove. All week he was geared up for this game. Whether that helped him or hurt him, he was definitely looking to prove himself.”

It was not the strongest start for Martinez. He recorded six strikeouts against the Comets (20-10-1) in five innings of work but allowed five earned runs and eight total runs in the Knights’ (8-19) 13-4 loss.
