Once Figueroa was detained, investigating officers continued to interview their witnesses and the suspect himself. After the interviews investigators with the Watsonville Police Department arrested Figueroa on assault charges, driving under the influence and fighting in a public place. He was transported and booked into the Santa Cruz County Jail. His bail was set at $25,000.00.
