COPY

Following a jury trial, defendant Daeron Young was convicted of felony carrying a loaded concealed firearm, of which he was not the registered owner. (Former Pen. Code, § 12025, subd. (b)(6).)*fn1 The trial court suspended imposition of sentence, placed defendant on five years' formal probation and ordered him to serve 180 days in the county jail. Defendant was awarded presentence custody credit of 27 days, but was not awarded any presentence conduct credits.

On appeal, defendant contends 1) the trial court should have granted his motion for mistrial based on improperly admitted evidence, and 2) he is entitled to presentence conduct credits. We modify the award of credits and affirm as modified.

Suspicious, Sow placed his hands on defendant's waist. Sow felt a hard object that, based on his five years in the Senegalese military, he thought was a gun. Sow yelled, "He's got a gun," and defendant fled. Sow testified that he and an employee named Dave Curry ran after defendant, following defendant past an apartment complex with a pool.

Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputy Eugene Hardy was at the parking lot of the Majestic Lounge, having responded to a different fight at the club. He heard someone yell, "[h]e's got a gun," and saw defendant being chased down the street by two men, Sow and Elliott. Deputy Hardy activated his lights and followed defendant in his patrol car. During the chase, Deputy Hardy saw defendant make a throwing motion toward the apartment complex's swimming pool and saw an object fly out of defendant's hand, but could not tell exactly what it was. Deputy Hardy described the throwing motion as beginning at defendant's right hip and ...
