Synopsis: On 01-01-2011, deputies responded to a 9-1-1 call at 45260 Headlands Drive in Little River regarding a domestic related physical altercation. Upon arrival deputies contacted the victim who had moderate visible injury to her left arm that required medical treatment.

Deputies learned from both the victim and suspect [James Meacham] that they had been involved in a verbal argument that escalated into Meacham grabbing hold of the victim's arm to prevent her from summoning law enforcement by telephone. During the physical contact the victim sustained her injury.

Meacham was arrested and transported to and lodged at the Mendocino County Jail where he was booked on the listed charges with bail set at $25,000.00.
