Officer Injured Pursuing Wanted Man
Gilroy – A man wanted for a grab-bag of crimes fled from Gilroy police Sunday morning, causing one officer to injure his knee. Efren Fregoso, 36, of San Jose, ran from a Gilroy home at 7:26am Sunday when officers arrived to arrest him on warrant charges of driving under the influence, marijuana possession, driving with a suspended license and failure to appear in court. The officer injured his knee while pursuing Fregoso; Gilroy Police Sgt. Jim Gillio, the department’s public information officer, was unsure of the nature of the injury or how long the officer might be out of work.
