The following is a press released issued by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:
On 05-12-2021 at approximately 11:07 A.M. Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a domestic disturbance in the 1800 block of Yokayo Ranch Road in Talmage, California.
Deputies learned a 43 year-old female had an argument regarding issues of infidelity and drug usage with Marco Rodriguez-Turner. He reportedly became upset and sat on her face, preventing her from breathing for several seconds.
The female ultimately bit Rodriguez-Turner in the back of the leg in order for him to get off of her. Rodriguez-Turner got off of the female, scratched the side of her neck, then broke several of her glass marijuana smoking devices.
Rodriguez-Turner left the location on foot and was later contacted by Deputies.
Deputies determined Rodriguez-Turner was currently on formal probation with a term including he must obey all laws. Rodriguez Turner is also the protected party in a served domestic violence restraining order, preventing him from violence against the female, stemming from previous domestic violence cases between the two individuals.
Rodriguez-Turner was placed under arrest for 1203.2 PC (Felony Violation of Probation), 243(e)(1) PC (Domestic Battery) and 273.6(a) PC (Violation of a Protective Order).
Rodriguez-Turner was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $40,000.00 bail.
