A Los Angeles County Fire Department captain – who was arrested on suspicion of assault following an altercation in Stevenson Ranch in July of last year – has had his sentencing hearing postponed to Dec. 5, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.  

Adam Clint, of Station 108 in Saugus, was arrested July 3 after Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to a report of a possible assault on the 25000 block of Keats Lane.   

After initial interviews once arriving on the scene, the investigators reported that a woman was driving home on the residential street when she was confronted by Clint, a homeowner, who said she was driving too fast through the neighborhood.   

Following the confrontation, the woman drove home and alerted her husband, who then drove to Clint’s home and had a confrontation with him on the doorstep.  

Clint allegedly assaulted the man after he turned around to leave the doorstep, according to sheriff’s officials.   

Clint was arrested later that same day on July 3 on suspicion of assault without a weapon likely to cause great bodily injury.   

Fire Capt. Ron Haralson confirmed that the department was aware of the arrest, but could not confirm or comment on Clint’s employment with the Fire Department or if there had been any disciplinary action taken against him in light of the arrest. He cited department policy that noted he was unable to comment on personnel matters.   

Clint was held in lieu of $50,000 bail, which was posted that same day, according to Sheriff’s Department arrest records.
