Synopsis: On 09-27-13 at approximately 1300 hours, Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to a Henderson Lane address in Covelo, California to investigate a reported incident of domestic violence.

Upon arrival they contacted the involved parties, finding the male victim to be severely intoxicated. The female suspect, Demeter McFadden, did not exhibit symptoms of alcohol intoxication but appeared to be under the influence of some other drug or intoxicant.

The victim told Deputies that he and his cohabitant girlfriend, McFadden, had argued and that she had struck him in the back with a board.

Scratches and bruising were visible on the victim's back. The board was located and the victim's injuries were consistent with a blow from that object.

McFadden was arrested for 273.5 PC, a felony violation of California's domestic violence law, and booked into the Mendocino County Jail to be held in lieu of $25,000.00 bail.
