Synopsis: On 12.01.12, at about 1945 hours, Mendocino County Deputy Sheriff's were called to a bar in Mendocino regarding a subject outside the bar with a machete threatening harm to a patron. Deputies spied the subject upon their arrival and he immediately fled on foot.

The deputies gave chase and eventually the subject was able to conceal himself somewhere in the downtown Mendocino area, eluding capture. A short time later deputies received information that the suspect had made a telephone call from the closed business, Align Progressive Footwear, on Albion Street in Mendocino.

Deputies responded to the business and found evidence that someone had forced entry. A subsequent search of the business revealed that the suspect had indeed broken in and used the telephone, but had left prior to their arrival.

Deputies later learned that the suspect, Jason Jaynes, had returned home and at approximately 0115 hours responded to his residence and contacted him, subsequently placing him under arrest for burglary of the business. Jaynes was taken into custody without incident and, after being treated at the hospital for injuries that he received while fleeing deputies, was lodged at the Mendocino County Jail where he is being held with bail set at $15,000.00.
