A 32-year-old Redding, Calif. man was arrested in the area of College Parkway Thursday night for felony battery with a deadly weapon, an assault with a deadly weapon warrant, and a domestic battery warrant.
Skyler Shane Smith was arrested after deputies responded to the area after an anonymous caller stated a fight was going on between two men in a parking lot.
When deputies arrived, the fight had ended but they were able to follow a blood trail to an apartment.
Deputies heard yelling for help coming from inside the apartment, and they made entry.
Inside, deputies located Smith and detained him. He was escorted outside into a police vehicle. He had several lacerations on his right hand, deputies noted.
Deputies learned he had a warrant for assault with a deadly weapon and domestic battery first with a $50,000 bail amount issued from Carson City Justice Court.
Inside the apartment, deputies located another man who was hiding in a bedroom closet. He had a laceration on his forehead and nose. He told deputies he was in a fight, but did not remember anything after getting hit and was unconscious for about 15 minutes.
Carson City Fire Department responded and transported the man to the hospital for medical attention. He received several stitches to his face and had trouble remembering his address, according to the report.
Deputies asked Smith what the fight was about, and he said it was something stupid but did not go into detail. He said he did not remember how his hand got injured.
Deputies spoke to a juvenile that was in the apartment and had witnessed the fight. They said the two had been drinking and got into a fight, and that Smith hit the other man over the head with a tin cookie sheet. He then took a coffee mug and hit the other man in the head, causing it to break and cut up the man’s face.
Smith told deputies that the man had broken a mug on his own face to show how tough he was.
Smith was taken into custody and received stitches on his right hand.
— A 21-year-old Gardnerville man was arrested in the area of West Nye Lane and West College Parkway for possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and two warrants for contempt of court.
On Friday afternoon, deputies were dispatched to a local auto sales store after William Thomas Liggett called 911 stating there was a man on scene that had stated he was going to shoot him.
Dispatch advised Liggett had warrants out for his arrest.
Deputies arrived at the auto sales business and found Liggett hiding behind a wooden fence, and came out when deputies pulled into the parking lot.
Liggett pointed out the man who had allegedly threatened to shoot him, and deputies went to speak with the man. He was released on scene.
Liggett was very upset and was not making sense, according to deputies. He said he was aware he had two warrants out of the Carson City Justice Courts. Deputies asked if he had anything on him, and he said he had two hypodermic needles in his pack.
He was taken into custody. Deputies located two hypodermic needles, two spoons, two small clear baggies and a small white container with a white crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine.
He was transported to the jail without incident.
