Based on ffre facis in this investigation,

I believe

the involved officets were clearly identifiable as

police oflicers with the city of Betkeley; the iovolved officers had the authotity ard probable cause to take Xavier Moore into custody fo: fre outstanrliog.u/arraflt asd for a WT 5150 evaiuation; aad, the physical force used to overcome Mobte's resistance and to effect the attest of lloore was
reasonable. Based oa the facts in ftis rnvestigatioq I believe Xaviet Moore was in violation of Califomia Penal
