A Big Oak Valley man who was on a three day, suspected methamphetamine binge has been taken to jail by Nevada County Deputies. Sheriff Keith Royal says a call of a disturbance came in yesterday at 3:40 p.m. from a home in the 23-thousand block of Hydraulic Way. Upon arrival, deputies found several individuals at the residence and 46 year old Ehren Eleby carrying a sharpened pipe and running up a hill.
The Sheriff says no one at the residence had been injured, and after a foot pursuit, Eleby was taken into custody. The Sheriff says there was another incident at booking into the jail.
Eleby’s charges include assault with a deadly weapon, making terrorist threats, domestic violence, bringing illicit drugs into a jail facility and possession of a controlled substance.
