On Tuesday, July 21, 2015 at approximately 5:50 AM, Antioch Police Detectives served an arrest warrant in the 10 block of W. 17th Street in Antioch for Rudy Cuellar.

Rudy Cuellar has been wanted for numerous warrants since 2012 to include a $1,000,000.00 warrant for murder. Cuellar was arrested inside of the home and later transferred to the Martinez Detention Facility.

On March 31, 2012 at 1:36 AM, Antioch Police received a 911 call from Cruisers Saloon reporting that a shooting had just occurred. It appears that a group of males who had been kicked out of the bar earlier in the night, returned with baseball bats specifically with the intention of starting a fight. The fight started inside the bar and then moved just outside the bar’s front door. One of the males, who had been kicked out earlier, pulled out a handgun and fired at least one shot inside the bar.

Lizandro ‘Tony” Bertolazzi, a 38-year-old married father of four, and Marine veteran was at Cruisers Saloon on A Street early that morning when he was struck by gunfire.
