TACOMA — A man who saw his barista girlfriend being robbed at her coffee stand in Spanaway drove after the suspect, knocking him down with his car when the man pointed a handgun at him, documents filed in Pierce County Superior Court said.

The suspect was able to get up and run away, but the boyfriend recovered the bag of stolen money (about $20) and a broken cell phone that the suspect apparently dropped, the documents stated.

Sheriff’s detectives said they were later able to identify the suspect, through witnesses and surveillance video, as Deandre Deshae Lopez Garcia, 28, and they found a stolen .22 caliber pistol in his apartment. He was arrested.

A Superior Court judge found probable cause on Wednesday that Lopez committed first-degree robbery and second-degree assault, both with firearm enhancements.

    Why do you morons need lies to slander Obama when there’s is so much truth out there to rip him on. This is why its so hard for Republicans to win because basic morons like you don’t do any research before speaking. Or use your racism to try an make a point. His hispanic last name makes him illegal? Ok. By the way Obama has deported more people than any President before him……by far. In fact its not even remotely close.
