Former CHP Assistant Chief Convicted On Battery Charges

A former CHP Official has been found guilty of charges in a road rage incident nearly two years ago south of Redding. On July 21st of 2017 a big rig driver’s dash cam captured footage that shows a Cross Petroleum tanker truck stopped on the Knighton Road overpass with a car blocking its way. A man, later identified as Todd Garr, can be seen falling backwards from the truck’s running board after being punched by the driver, Kenneth McFall. At the time, Garr was Assistant Chief of the CHP Northern Division Office in Redding. Garr was off duty at the time, and he had stopped in front of the big rig to block its way and confront the truck driver after an incident on the freeway. Shasta County D.A. Stephanie Bridgett’s husband works for the CHP so she sent the case to be handled by the State Attorney General’s office. Garr is no longer employed by the CHP. On Friday a Shasta County jury convicted Garr of misdemeanor battery and reckless driving. Sentencing is set for July 25th.
