A suspect allegedly attempting to run over a Six Flags Magic Mountain employee was taken into custody after a reported deputy-involved fight Saturday afternoon, officials said.
The incident was reported just before 5 p.m. Saturday near the employee lot of Six Flags off Magic Mountain Parkway in Valencia, according to Shirley Miller, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
“The suspect was driving erratically in the area and attempted to run an employee over,” Miller said. “He was combative with deputies.”
Firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to the scene, but no victims were transported to the hospital, according to a dispatch supervisor for the department
Protests in the Valencia area earlier Saturday are about two miles away near Valencia Boulevard and McBean Parkway and are not believed to be connected to the deputy-involved fight, according to officials.
The suspect, who was possibly under the influence, was taken into custody, according to Miller.
