  Boise Police observed a vehicle emitting very loud music, in violation of Boise City Code, as it travelled westbound on State street yesterday (May 12th) at approximately 9:00 p.m. As officers activated overhead lights and siren to stop the vehicle, the driver ignored the officers. At one point, after the driver made eye contact with officers, the vehicle turned into a parking lot and accelerated, before turning again into a trailer park on the 600 block of West State. The vehicle came to a stop and the driver exited the car. Officers instructed the driver, later identified as Sergio Zamudio, to place his hands on his head. At this point a second suspect, later identified as Michael Zamudio, began yelling at officers and cursing. Michael Zamudio retrieved a 2X4 piece of wood approximately 3 feet long and began to aggress officers while yelling threats. Neither suspect complied with commands issued by the officers on scene and continued to yell obscenities and threats at police. As officers took Sergio Zamudio into custody, a struggle took place. During the struggle, Sergio Zamudio produced a knife from his waistband. Officers wrestled him to the ground and Sergio Zamudio was handcuffed. Michael Zamudio was also taken into custody. The suspects were booked at the Ada County Jail on the above listed charges.
