18-year-old Catalan Salvador was charged with aggravated assault and resisting with a deadly weapon when DCSO planned to evict him, and he pulled a pistol, then ran when MNPD attempted to place him into custody. On July 24th, MNPD arrived at Nolensville Pike to assist DCSO, who was at the residence to evict Catalan. DCSO Deputy Lugg said that he went to an upstairs room in the residence and found a doorway covered with a blanket. When Deputy Lugg pulled the cover back, he saw Catalan standing in the room brandishing a pistol at Deputy Lugg. He then instructed Catalan to drop the pistol and go outside; he obliged. MNPD Found Catalan outside when they arrived and told him that they were placing him into custody; he then ran on foot from them. With the help of DCSO, Catalan was brought to the ground and continued to resist the arrest by not putting his hands behind his back and refusing entry to the police vehicle. He was taken to the general hospital for the injuries he sustained during the resistance before being transported to jail.
