At approximately 1:20 p.m., scanner traffic indicated Mendocino County Sheriff deputies and other law enforcement began responding to an area near the intersection of Covelo Street and William Street in Mendocino regarding a fight between a man and a woman.

Reportedly, the female party hit the man with her truck and the male began to strike the female’s truck with a sledge hammer.

The suspect vehicle driven by the female reportedly fled the scene. The vehicle is described as a green Nissan pickup truck with a damaged windshield.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
