Synopsis: On 11/26/2013 at approximately 1530 hours, Mendocino County Sheriff Deputies were dispatched to the 18000 block of North Highway 1 for a reported assault with a deadly weapon.

Deputies arrived in the area and contacted the female victim who identified the suspect as Brian Deeter, her cohabitating partner. The victim told Deputies that Deeter became upset while they were at their place of residence. Due to Deeterís behavior, the victim left the location on foot with her two children.

Soon after her departure, the victim observed Deeter driving his vehicle down the roadway towards her location. Deeter drove directly at the victim, causing her to jump out of the way of the moving vehicle in order to avoid being struck. The victim sustained minor visible injury as a result of the incident.

Deputies spoke to both of the victimís children who corroborated the victimís statements. One of the children also sustained minor visible injury as a result of falling during the incident.

Deputies contacted Deeter at the same location and ultimately arrested him. Deeter was transported to the Mendocino County Jail where he is being held in lieu of $30,000.00 bail.
