It happened in the 4800 block of East Mono Avenue when police issued a warrant for Romero's arrest. He was wanted for drug possession and resisting arrest.

He will be booked into the Fresno County Jail after he is released from the hospital on charges of possession of methamphetamine for sales, resisting arrest, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
