Local woman arrested for domestic violence incident in Mendocino County

REDWOOD VALLEY – A woman from Nice was arrested Thursday by Mendocino County Sheriff's deputies for allegedly assaulting her male partner.


Lanisha Sanders, 26, was arrested for spousal abuse and violation of parole following an incident that occurred in Redwood Valley, according to Capt. Kurt Smallcomb.


At 8:20 p.m. Thursday Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched to the area of East Road in Redwood Valley just south of the Highway 20 intersection to assist a California Highway Patrol Officer requesting assistance, Smallcomb said.


Upon arrival deputies learned that the CHP officer was patrolling in the area when he observed the victim, a 32-year-old male subject who was not named in the report, waving at him for assistance.


Smallcomb said the CHP officer contacted the victim and discovered he had been in a possible domestic violence incident with his female cohabitant.


The deputies investigated the incident and determined that Sanders and the victim had recently left the Shodakai Casino in a vehicle and were traveling home when they had an argument, Smallcomb said.


During the argument Sanders allegedly assaulted the victim by scratching and kicking at him. Smallcomb said deputies also discovered Sanders was intoxicated, had a misdemeanor warrant for her arrest and was on court probation.


Sanders was arrested for the warrant, spousal abuse and the probation violation and transported to the Mendocino County jail, where she was booked. Bail was set at $30,000.
