A 31-year-old Pacifica parolee wanted for a parole violation was spotted by Pacifica police Wednesday and arrested after a brief standoff with officers, police said.
About 6 p.m. Wednesday, officers on patrol in the 1000 block of Grand Teton Drive recognized Michael Richard Browning as he stood in front of a residence. When Browning saw the patrol car, he allegedly ran into the home’s garage.
Additional officers including a canine unit responded and tried to communicate with Browning for about an hour, encouraging him to surrender. Browning was taken into custody without further incident.
He was booked into the main jail in Redwood City on a warrant on suspicion of parole violations and resisting arrest.
