Officers Injured While Taking Parole Into Custody At Shasta College

A parolee fought with Redding Police Officers who were trying to remove him from the Shasta College campus. On Monday, campus security attempted to serve 29-year-old David Wuco with paperwork ordering him to stay off campus while they investigated sexual misconduct allegations. He refused to accept the paperwork and left. On Tuesday morning, Wuco went back to the school and was confronted by campus security. He ultimately agreed to discuss the matter with them at their office. Due to Wuco’s violent history and the fact he is on parole for assault with a deadly weapon, multiple Redding Police Officers responded to assist Shasta College with his removal. They tried to physically remove him, but Wuco jumped up from his chair, put up his fists, and took a fighting stance. He punched multiple officers in the face causing significant injuries to three officers who had to be treated at a local hospital. Additional officers arrived and ultimately took Wuco into custody. Wuco was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries and booked into Shasta County Jail for battery causing serious bodily injury, resisting officers with the use of violence, and violation of parole. Wuco is currently on parole for assault with a deadly weapon and his supervision level is classified as “high risk”. He served a five year prison sentence for the assault with a deadly weapon case and he was released from prison in November.
