RANCHO TEHAMA RESERVE, Calif.—According to the Tehama County Sheriff’s Department deputies were dispatched to Oakridge Road in Rancho Tehama regarding a disturbance.

While deputies were in route the reporting party Christina Wheeler told dispatch that her ex-husband Mr. Alavazo had rammed his truck into her new boyfriend’s car multiple times.

Wheeler also told police that Alavazo had a gun.

Wheeler said that Alavazo was parked in front of her home and fired multiple shots at an unknown target.

Wheeler told police dispatch that Alavazo had left the area possibly to head home to Kern Drive.

Just before deputies arrived at Alavazo’s home Alavazo’s cousin called dispatch and said that Sanchez fired a gun at them.

Deputies secured both scenes and found evidence at the Oakridge address that led them to believe that Alavazo was the primary aggressor.

Deputies also determined that Alavazo had rammed Sanchez car at least two times and then tried to run him over with his truck.

Deputies did not locate a weapon, but from evidence at the scene they believe the gun was a BB gun.

Deputies arrested Alavazo and booked him into the Tehama County Jail on criminal threats charge, assault with a deadly weapon, and hit and run.

His bail is set at $85,140.
