Clark received inpatient psychiatric treatment earlier this month after police responded to a distress call in North Sacramento. He said it was difficult to cope with his brother's death, given public attention after the police shootings.
"At this point, it is the processing of his grief and persistent psychological issues that he does not address," said Sonia Lewis, a Clark relative and member of Black Lives Matter Sacramento, who alerted Stevante Clark's family members to arrest Thursday afternoon.
While she did not know what led to his arrest, Lewis said she was worried that Clark was being detained instead of receiving mental treatment. She said she often checked in with Clark to see how he was doing.
Alejandro Reylon Rouska said Thursday that he and his girlfriend had rented a room on their Acacia Avenue to Clark in January. They described Clark as unstable since his brother's death.
Rouska said his girlfriend had asked Clark late on Monday to stop yelling at the police through his bedroom window. Clark was furious with this request and continued to threaten the girlfriend's life until Tuesday morning, Rouska said.
Clark refused to go and the couple sought a restraining order after calling the police several times, Rouska said. They stayed in a hotel for two nights.
"The moment you threaten my (girlfriend's) life, we have to do something," Rouska said.
