Charges Dismissed, Re-filed Against Man Who Allegedly Assaulted Officer


Charges were dismissed but quickly re-filed Tuesday against a man accused of trying to speed away from Cathedral City police during a traffic stop and dragging an officer a short distance in 2018.

“The trial did not begin because it was set on its last day for trial and there were no courtrooms available. It is an example of the mass dismissals occurring,” Amy McKenzie from the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office told City News Service. “Our office immediately re-filed the case.”

Steven Flores, 36, of Cathedral City, faces the same five felony counts, one each of attempted murder, assault with a semi-automatic firearm, robbery, assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer and resisting or deterring an officer, according to court records.
