Arbuckle man facing charges for evading peace officer

An Arbuckle man with a lengthy criminal history could have his past behavior come back to haunt him if he is convicted of his most recent felony: evading a peace officer with willful disregard to public safety.

A preliminary hearing has been set for June 3, for Travis Lovelll Weatherly, 29, who escaped a Colusa County Sheriff’s deputy last March.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the deputy attempted to stop a motorcycle with two occupants traveling 80 to 90 mph as it headed into Arbuckle around 9:40 AM on March 4, but the driver failed to yield when the deputy activated his lights and siren.

The deputy pursued the motorcycle until the driver laid it on its side and fled on foot, officials said.

Weatherly was eventually identified during the investigation as the driver and was charged with felony evading a peace officer and for violating the terms of his probation.

Weatherly has a long history of drug related offenses, violence against women, DUI, evading police, assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a stolen vehicle, and multiple convictions for resisting arrest, among other crimes, court records indicate.

In 2019, Weatherly was accused of threatening to “blow the heads off” the mother of his child and her mother while waving a handgun at them, court records show. Although the charges were eventually dismissed, they were dismissed with a Harvey Waiver, which will allow the judge to consider the incident in any sentence Weatherly may receive on the current charges.

Weatherly was also on probation for the Feb. 26, 2020 conviction of using a crowbar to damage the vehicle belonging to another man, who is also the mother of one of his children.

A probation violation hearing is set for June 3, in that case.
