A Kings County man was arrested in connection to a domestic violence incident after effectively turning himself in via social media, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
On the evening of Tuesday, March 9, deputies responded to a home on the 6000 block of 16th after dispatch received a disturbing call from an audibly distressed woman who said a man at the home had assaulted her and her daughter. Dispatch also reportedly heard a child screaming in the background.
The woman said the man, later identified as 34-year-old Reynaldo Guillen, had pushed her, thrown a plate at her, threatened to kill her with a gun, and tried to strangle her 16-year-old daughter. Younger children who were also at the home were trying to distract him and keep him from hurting their mother and older sister, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Later, about an hour after the call, Guillen posted on social media that he was in the parking lot of the Tachi Palace Casino in Lemoore with the caption, “Come get me here.” Deputies responded to the location and found Guillen sitting in his vehicle. After about fifteen minutes of negotiations, Guillen surrendered.
He was later booked at the Kings County Jail on $150,000 bond.
