February 19, 2023 – Ventura County, Ca.
While he may qualify as holding the title for “coolest name for a cowboy movie villain,” 29-year-old Ventura resident Quatrell Stallings apparently has a lot to learn about living life as an intemperate hothead in the 21st Century.
According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Detective Doepking, Stallings was in the company of a female at a Camarillo motel sometime after midnight on February 15th when a “verbal argument” erupted that ended when—perhaps imitating the stunts of cowboy stuntmen of bygone days—he summarily “jumped from the second story balcony” and landed on the hood of a parked car, “causing significant damage.”
Stalling’s athletic daring-do promptly came to the attention of the vehicle’s owner who “confronted Stallings in the motel parking lot.” Words soon escalated into a physical confrontation during which Stallings “assaulted the victim, stole his cell phone, and fled the area.” A 911 call for service to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Dispatch quickly brought deputies to the scene, but by the time of their arrival, Stallings was nowhere to be seen.
A review of the motel’s video surveillance recordings enabled deputies to quickly identify Stallings as a suspect in the assault and theft. Later in the evening of February 15th, detectives “developed information” as to Stalling’s whereabouts in the city of Ventura. At 11:15 p.m. that evening, Stallings was located at a Ventura motel, where he was contacted and taken into custody. He was then transported to Ventura County Jail, where was booked on charges of vandalism and robbery, with his bail set at $110,000.
