DALY CITY -- Neither snow, nor rain can stop the U.S. Postal Service, but a man on drugs who's clinging to a mail truck and gets into a fight with a police officer can certainly delay it.

Police say they were called to just such a circumstance Sept. 4 when they found a 30-year-old Daly City man clinging to the front of a letter carrier's truck at Eastmoor and Sullivan avenues around 10:45 a.m. The man was "incoherent and making strange sounds," and because he was holding onto the truck, the letter carrier couldn't leave, Daly City police said.

As Daly City police officers approached the suspect, he hit an officer in the temple with his elbow and also punched him in the chest, police said. The officers subsequently managed to get the suspect into handcuffs and took him to a Peninsula hospital, where he allegedly admitted to taking the drug Ecstasy.

Oakk Win was booked into San Mateo County jail in Redwood City on suspicion of battery on a police officer and being under the influence of illegal drugs. He's now out on $25,000 bail and is due in San Mateo County Superior Court Oct. 7 if he's charged with a crime, Assistant District Attorney Albert Serrato said.
