City of Shasta Lake, Calif. --

The Shasta County Sheriff's Office says a man suspected of domestic violence also assaulted a Sheriff K-9 during his arrest.

Deputies with the Shasta Lake Patrol Station responded to a domestic disturbance call at Millers Mobile Home Park on Cascade Bouldevard at around 9 p.m. Thursday. That's where deputies contacted a victim with visible injuries who said she was assaulted by her husband, 28-year old Jonathan Romo.

Deputies found Romo in violation of felony corporal injury to a spouse and assault with a deadly weapon. Deputies say Romo began to yell from the home, and ran out of view. That is when deputies released K-9 "Hondo" inside the mobile home to apprehend Romo.

The Sheriff's Office says Romo assaulted K-9 "Hondo" by kicking him. The K-9 was not injured.

Romo was arrested for felony corporal injury to a spouse, assault with a deadly weapon, resisting arrest, and harming a police K-9.

We've had a mostly sunny valley with a few more clouds over the mountains today, but it's been another beautiful day with warmer highs than yesterday. Much warmer weather is headed our way this weekend... enjoy, but stay cool!
