A latenight 911 call about someone being harassed by four people, including one with a gun, ended with four arrests last Friday, according to a release from Boise police.
Officers were dispatched at 3:30 a.m. to a house near the intersection of South Division Avenue and West Hale Street.
As they arrived at the scene, police saw four people get into a vehicle to leave. They attempted to stop the group, but the driver — later identified as Boisean Francisco Lopez, 43 — refused to keep his hands in view and exit the vehicle, police said.
Never miss a local story.
Lopez physically fought police attempts to pull him out of the car. He attempted to drive the car away, dragging two officers, police said. He slammed into a police cruiser, and an officer was able to pull the keys out of the vehicle ingnition.
Lopez attempted to pull a handgun out of a front pocket in his shorts during his struggle with the officers, Boise police said. That gun was later found to have been stolen in Canyon County.

During a search of the vehicle, police found drugs: 10 ounces of marijuana on the front passenger seat floorboard, 30 grams of methamphetamine in the trunk of the vehicle and an additional baggie containing white powder on a seat (tested presumptive positive for meth).
Lopez was booked into the Ada County Jail on two counts of felony assault or battery on an officer, felony unlawful possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, felony grand theft, felony drug trafficking and misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
Churchman was charged with felony possession with intention to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance, misdemeanor resisting or obstructing officers, and misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
Two others in the vehicle were also arrested.
Aaron Owyhee, a 35-year-old Boise man, was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, misdemeanor disorderly conduct and misdemeanor failure to appear in court.
