Supervisor Efren Carrillo Arrested for Battery

Says he was protecting women from harassment in San Diego

According to official arrest records, Sonoma County Supervisor Efren Carrillo was arrested in San Diego Monday night for "Battery with Serious Bodily Injury" and "Disturbing the Peace by Fighting."

In a report by Jenna Lane on KGO this morning, Carrillo stated he was protecting some female acquaintances.

We contacted Carrillo's office, which confirmed the arrest, and released Carrillo's following statement:

“I was in San Diego for Labor Day weekend on my own personal business. I was socializing with a group of friends when rowdies approached our group and harassed women in our group. I stepped in to protect them. I’m anxious to tell my side of the story during legal proceedings.”

Supervisor Carrillo is traveling on a prescheduled trip and will be out of the country until Tuesday, Sept. 18th, when he returns for a regularly scheduled board meeting.

Strangely, the Press Democrat doesn't have the story yet. (Update: It's up now.)

The arrest occurred at 2:10am at 500 Fourth Ave. in San Diego. That's the location of Fluxx nightclub, where on Sunday night, Oakland rap legend Too $hort performed. In this photo from the show on Fluxx's Facebook page, a man who looks a lot like Carrillo can be seen in the background, wearing a blue shirt, which matches the arrest log description.

We'll update with details as they come in.
