During the stop three units responded to assist at the scene. Another car entered the scene and struck one of the patrol cars, Officer Fontes, and a second officer.

Jesus, pray for Eric Fontes

The 20 year old driver who struck Officer Fontes was arrested and charged with negligent homicide and other charges.

Fellow officers have stated that Eric Fontes was a great guy, a great and likable cop, and a man of faith. They say he was a family man and always made people laugh. He was also a positive person and encouraged the people he worked with.
