Tahoe crime recap: Man repeatedly arrested for domestic violence arrested again
A South Lake Tahoe man who was arrested twice in the past four years for domestic violence was arrested again Thursday, March 30.
The 29-year-old man was arrested after the 28-year-old woman he was living with in the 3700 block of Ruby Way arrived at the police station with a friend and reported the incident, according to Lt. Shannon Laney with the South Lake Tahoe Police Department. The incident had happened the previous night.
The woman did not report that she needed medical attention.
The man was arrested on charges of domestic violence, false imprisonment and violating his parole, which was in place due to a prior case involving domestic violence. He has been arrested multiple times in the past four years, including twice for domestic violence, according to Laney.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the man remained in jail on a total bail of $52,000, according to El Dorado County jail records.
Assault with a pint glass
A 53-year-old South Lake Tahoe woman was arrested Thursday, March 30, after allegedly assaulting her live-in boyfriend with a pint glass.
Officers were called to the 3100 block of Fresno Avenue where the woman and the 58-year-old man resided.
The woman had previously been the victim of domestic violence, but this time she appeared to be the suspect, Laney said. Typically, these cases tend to be ongoing squabbles between couples, often fueled by alcohol.
The victim refused medical treatment at the time.
The woman was booked into the El Dorado County jail in South Lake Tahoe for domestic violence and assault with a deadly weapon. Her total bail was originally posted as $75,000, according to jail records. She has since been released.
A 23-year-old resident of Hayward, California got a ride to the hospital before getting a ride to jail after threatening medical staff because they told him to turn his music down.
The man was initially transported to Barton Memorial Hospital from Douglas County by ambulance on March 27.
The man decided he wanted to play music on his cellphone while awaiting medical treatment, according to Laney. When the hospital staff told him to turn it down, he became angry and aggressive and he refused to stay in his hospital room.
The man started pacing the hallways and repeatedly said he was going to rape the nursing staff. He proceeded to punch a wall and break his own cell phone. He was arrested on charges of threatening with intent to terrorize.
“We won’t be having our Barton staff treated that way,” Laney said in an email.
As of Tuesday afternoon he remained in El Dorado County jail with a total bail of $60,000, according to jail records.
