The California Highway Patrol has conducted a traditional ceremony for a motorcycle officer fatally struck by a vehicle during a traffic stop in Riverside County.

CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley announced end-of-watch for Sgt. Steven Licon on Monday at the CHP Academy in West Sacramento.

Officers stood at attention as a bell was rung in a plaza where a memorial fountain bears the names of officers killed in the line of duty.

Academy commander James Mann says Licon is the 230th officer to be honored by the fountain.

The 28-year veteran was struck Saturday on Interstate 15 and died at a hospital.

The driver of the vehicle that struck him was arrested for investigation of murder and drunken driving.
