Sparks Police Arrest Man for Breaking Parole, Domestic Battery

Posted: Updated:

Sparks Police report that one Sparks man was placed under arrest late Saturday night after violating his parole.

Officers say that just after 11:15 p.m. they were called to the 1100 block of Russell Way in an attempt to locate Fiatau "Herbie" Lutu, who was wanted for parole violation and domestic battery charges. During their search of the area, police saw Lutu fleeing on foot out of the back door of a home, and gave chase.

Lutu was found hiding in the back of a neighbor's pickup truck, and taken to the Washoe County Jail, where he was booked on one count of Parole Violation, Domestic Battery and Obstructing.

Sparks Police say they want to thank surrounding neighbors for their patience and support during the arrest and investigation.
