Synopsis: On 05-24-2014 at approximately 05:48 PM, Mendocino County Sheriff Deputies were dispatched to the 100 block of Main Street, Point Arena, to a report of a collision involving three vehicles and a physical altercation which had ensued.

Mendocino County Sheriff Deputies arrived at the location and observed a small crowd around the suspect, who was identified as Trevor Sanders. Sheriff Deputies learned that Sanders had used his vehicle to strike several parked vehicles multiple times with enough force to cause significant damaged to all involved vehicles.

It was reported that one of the vehicles owners was just entering his vehicle when he observed Sanders driving toward him. The victim was forced to jump out of the way of Sanders’ vehicle to avoid being struck. Sanders backed his vehicle and then struck the victims vehicle two additional times.

The victim attempted to remove the keys from Sander’s vehicle and a fight ensued. Subjects at the scene detained Sanders until Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived.

The investigation revealed that Sanders had been consuming alcoholic beverages at a local bar and then left, operating his vehicle under the influence of alcohol. Sanders began ramming vehicles outside the bar for unknown reasons and narrowly missed striking a pedestrian.

Sanders was placed under arrest for violations of 245(a)(1)PC [Assualt With A Deadly Weapon] and 23152(a)(b)CVC [Driving Under the Influence] and booked into the Mendocino County Jail. Sanders bail was set at $30,000.00 dollars.
