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.
