Jonathan Bizzle, Involved In Earlier Bingham High Assault, Arrested By SWAT Team For Robbery After Seven-Hour Standoff In West Valley City, Utah

"Yo, mofo, I'm Bizzle with the shizzle"

On July 15th, 2008, after a seven-hour standoff at a West Valley City, Utah house located at 4940 W. 3640 South which was resolved peacefully, four people were arrested in association with the robbery of the Premier Services Credit Union at 2250 S. Redwood Road in West Valley City. Two of them were identified as Corey Morrison and George Dumas. Another is an unidentified 17-year-old juvenile (the Salt Lake Tribune claims two additional unidentified people were involved, including a woman). This takedown has been well-chronicled in the Deseret News and the Salt Lake Tribune, and a KSTU Channel 13 video report.

However, what KSL really expands upon on July 16th is the one person of particular interest, 20-year-old Jonathan Bizzle. On June 25th, Bizzle, along with four other thugs, beat Bluffdale resident Alex Hansen senseless at Bingham High School in revenge for the fact that Hansen allegedly helped get Bizzle fired from a job at Pizza Hut. As a result of this assault, Bizzle was added to the Metro Gang Unit's Most-Wanted list and an arrest warrant on two counts of aggravated robbery issued. Bizzle is believed to be a gang member, and has a prior record for burglary, aggravated robbery, and assault.

Alex Hansen - another victim of 'diversity'

According to Hansen, two girls lured him and his friend to Bingham High School. When they left, a group of five guys pulled up, including Bizzle, who was looking for revenge. Hansen described the encounter as follows, "He was the first one who came up and hit me. He came up from behind, started hitting me in the head, and that's when they said to close my eyes or they would shoot me, so I closed my eyes." So far, there is no overt evidence that Bizzle's assault on Hansen was racially motivated; Hansen reported no racial slurs were directed at him during the attack.

Facilitating the capture of the robbers was a nearby witness. An employee at the chiropractor's office next door saw the crime go down and called 911. The employee took down the license plate number of the getaway car. And that description led police to the house near 3600 South and 4800 West. When the getaway car pulled up, officers arrested Jonathan Bizzle.

And Alex Hansen couldn't be happier.
