One deputy suffered minor injuries in the melee

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Six people have been arrested after a brawl with Kern County Sheriff's deputies in East Bakersfield.

It happened Friday night at approximately 11:15 p.m.

According to Lt. Dana Albro, a senior deputy of the Kern County Sheriff's Gang Unit saw a vehicle in the intersection of Owens Street and Kentucky Street.  The vehicle was driving recklessly and the deputy initiated at traffic stop.

As soon as the vehicle stopped, the driver of the vehicle, identified as Brian Allen Dora Jr., 20, jumped out of a window and attacked the senior deputy.

Family members of Dora were gathered at a nearby house and saw Dora fighting with deputies.  His family members rushed to Dora's assistance and attempted to pull Dora away from deputies as other family members continued to fight with the deputies.

At one point, Dora broke free from the deputies and ran into a nearby family house on Kentucky Street.

While deputies were searching the property for Dora, he ran toward a deputy in a aggressive manner and refused to comply with the deputy's orders.  A Sheriff's canine was deployed and Dora was bitten in the leg by the animal and was taken into custody.

Dora was arrested for reckless driving, assault on a peace officer, resisting arrest and threats against a peace officer.  He was transported to Kern Medical Center for treatment of a dog bite prior to being booked into the Central Receiving Facility.

During the incident, Dora's father, Brian Allen Dora Sr., was arrested for possession of cocaine, threatening a peace officer and public intoxication.

Raul Alatorre, 23, was arrested for resisting arrest, along with Jaime Alatorre, 24, David Ramirez, 51, and Gloria Ramirez, 45.

At least one of the deputies sustained minor cuts and abrasions during the fight.
