On 06-01-2016 at approximately 12:03 PM Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to investigate a domestic dispute that happened the previous day at a residence in the 76000 block of Lovell Street in Covelo, California.
When Deputies arrived at the location they contacted a 43 year-old female who stated she had been assaulted by her 54 year-old male cohabitant, Ronald Wayne Callen.
During the altercation Callen grabbed a hold of the 43 year-old female by her head and then pushed her to the floor. Once the 43 year-old female was on the floor Callen began shaking her. The 43 year-old female had visible injuries to her face and stomach area.
During the investigation Deputies located Callen and placed him under arrest for 273.5 PC [Domestic Violence Battery].
Callen was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $25,000.00 bail.
