Oceanside man pleads guilty to resisting arrest and felony vandalism charges

VISTA (KUSI) – A man who threw his bicycle through two large windows at an Oceanside restaurant, then fought the police after being stunned with a stun gun, pleaded guilty Friday to resisting arrest and felony vandalism charges.

Deputy District Attorney Cal Logan, Adolfo Pablo Evans, 39, will be sentenced on Nov. 12 to a two-year prison term.

An employee of Fiesta Mexicana on Mission Avenue near El Camino Real spotted Evans tampering with property at the rear of the closed restaurant around 6:30 a.m. on Sept. 29, Oceanside police Lt. Leonard Cosby said.

Evans tried to force his way inside, but was locked out after a brief struggle with the employee. He then headed to the side of the restaurant and used his bike to break two large plate glass windows, Cosby said.

The employee called police and Evans fled — but he didn’t get far, the lieutenant said.

He was spotted shortly afterward near the Villa Del Mar Apartments less than a block away on Los Arbolitos Boulevard and attempted to run off again.

At some point during the brief pursuit, Evans turned around, prompting the officer to use his Taser. Cosby said the stun gun had little effect, however, and a scuffle ensued.

Arriving officers broke up the tussle and took Evans into custody.
