Man held on domestic violence charges

A Williams man has pleaded not guilty to assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly engaged in a vehicle version of Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots with the mother of his child.

Mauricio Maldonado Gutierrez, 34, reportedly chased his wife’s vehicle from Yuba City to Colusa just after 1 AM on April 24, striking it with his vehicle several times along the way, according to the Colusa County Sheriff’s Department.

Law enforcement officers from the Colusa Police Department and Sheriff’s Office caught up with Gutierrez traveling on Highway 20 just west of Colusa, where he voluntarily pulled into the parking lot of Beeler Tractor.

A Sheriff’s deputy confirmed the incident was a domestic dispute, officials said.

“Each vehicle had fresh damage with paint from the involved vehicles being transferred to one another,” according to Assistant Sheriff Michael Bradwell.

Gutierrez was arrested and booked into the Colusa County Jail around 3:20 AM for assault with a deadly weapon involving a vehicle, vandalism to a vehicle, and violation of a court order.

Gutierrez has a history of domestic violence with the same woman, court records indicate. He pleaded guilty of assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury and vandalism last October, following a similar domestic incident, and was sentenced to 15 days in Colusa County Jail, three years probation, and was ordered to take the 52-week batterers program.

Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Ufkes Olivera ordered Gutierrez to maintain only peaceful contact with the victim, with whom he shares a child, but Gutierrez was arrested again just three days before the vehicle chase on another domestic dispute, which occurred at his wife’s home in Williams.

Gutierrez is scheduled to appear in court on June 16 for further arraignment on the assault charges and a pretrial conference for disobeying a court order.

Gutierrez was again ordered not to have any telephone, online, or physical contact with the victim, even if he posts the $65,000 bail.

As Gutierrez’ wife appeared at her husband’s April 24 hearing, Olivera speculated that her orders “were falling on deaf ears.”
