Synopsis: On 08-06-2014 at approximately 5:40 P.M., Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched to the 28000 block of Poppy Drive in Willits, California for a domestic violence related assault.

Upon arrival Deputies contacted the female victim, and learned the suspect, Timothy Gregory, had run from the location prior to the Deputies arrival.

During the contact, Deputies learned the couple was engaged in a dating relationship and had been engaged in a verbal argument, which escalated into Gregory throwing a half full can of beer at the victim, hitting her in the leg.

The victim then ran outside and locked herself inside her vehicle, trying to get away from Gregory.

Gregory then got inside his lifted Chevy truck and rammed the victim's vehicle, with the victim still inside causing major front end damage to the victim's vehicle. Gregory then exited his vehicle and fled the location.

There were no visible injuries to the victim, thus resulting in no medical treatment.

During a search of the area Deputies located Gregory hiding approximately thirty yards from the victim's residence.

Gregory was also found to be on summary probation in Mendocino County with an obey all laws clause.

Gregory was placed under arrest for the listed violations without incident, and then transported to the Mendocino County Jail where he was booked in lieu of $30,000.00 bail.
