Former Tulumne County Sheriff's Sergeant Mike Pershall Killed by Suspected Drunk Driver

Modesto, CA...Former Tuolumne County Sheriff's Deputy Killed by suspected drunk driver last night. From TCSO.."The Modesto Police Department suffered a tragic loss last night when Sergeant Mike Pershall was killed in a vehicle versus bicycle accident. Mike Pershall has been with MPD since 2012, previously with the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office from 2008 to 2012. Mike was a good Cop, a good friend and this is truly a tragic loss. We were blessed to have Mike for the time he was with our Office. We are so very sorry for Mike’s wife, children, family and MPD. Our sincerest condolences, our hearts are heavy today."




From Modesto Police Dept...Family and friends of Modesto Police Sergeant Michael Pershall continue to grieve his loss the day after a tragic fatal vehicle collision. On Tuesday evening, 38-year-old Michael Pershall was off-duty and riding his bicycle along Merle Avenue near Savage School, when he was hit by a suspected drunk driver. California Highway Patrol officers are investigating the fatal collision and arrested the driver, 32-year-old Matthew Gibbs of Modesto for homicide and several driving under the influence related charges.

Pershall was a 9 year veteran in law enforcement, serving 4 years in Tuolumne County as a sheriff deputy before joining the Modesto Police Department in 2012. Pershall quickly proved he was a dedicated professional who cared about the community and youth. During his time with the Modesto Police Department Sergeant Pershall served as a Canine Handler, Field Training Officer, Police Explorer Advisor and negotiator for the Critical Incident Team. As a Field Training Officer, Pershall was instrumental in training and mentoring new officers, teaching them the fundamentals of being a public servant and guardian to the community. Pershall also volunteered as an advisor for the Police Explorer Program, which is a mentoring and development program for youth between the ages of 15 and 21. Pershall led by example and was a positive role model for the new and young members of the department.

As a canine handler, Pershall was actively engaged with the department’s community outreach and provided countless canine presentations and demonstrations to community groups, schools and youth organizations. His most recent outing with his canine partner “Ike” involved visiting several block parties at this year’s National Night Out.

Pershall was recently promoted to Police Sergeant on August 8th and was beginning his new chapter as a frontline supervisor and leader within the organization.

“Mike’s loss creates a tremendous void within our organization and within the hearts of those he touched” said Chief Galen Carroll. “We are forever grateful for the moments we shared with him”.
