A 54-year-old man was recognized Friday, August 10, for his action that helped a police officer in a struggle with four people on the beach on August 1.
The Corpus Christi Police Department held a ceremony at the Flour Bluff Police Assembly Point to honor and thank 54 year old Victor Zamora for his part to aid an officer. Mr. Zamora said he would gladly do anything to help a person in need.
Corpus Christi Police Officer Eric Garza was dispatched to the area of Beach Marker 224 at 7:23pm on August 1 for a reckless driver. Officer Garza saw a red 2000 Mitsubishi Montero sport utility vehicle doing donuts on the beach and initiated a traffic stop. The operator of the vehicle, 19-year-old Kyle Fisk (7/13/1993) displayed aggressive behavior toward Officer Garza. Officer Garza demanded Fisk exit the vehicle. Fisk exited the vehicle then fought with Officer Garza to prevent the application of handcuffs.
The three other occupants of the vehicle then got out of the vehicle and then interfered with the arrest while Officer Garza and Fisk fought in the sand.
Mr. Zamora saw the struggle and stopped to help Officer Garza.
Other Police Officers arrived and arrested: 18-year-old Christian Rodriguez (2/26/1994) for interfering with public duties; 19-year-old Caitlin Fisher (8/3/1992) for assault by contact and interfering with public duties; and 19-year-old Joseph Mitchell (12/25/1992) for interfering with public duties. Fisk was arrested for reckless driving and resisting arrest and the red Montero was impounded.
