Tennant puts Landord in Hospital

Early Friday morning, the Nevada County Sheriff received a cellular 9-1-1 call from an individual reporting a disturbance occurred in the 13 thousand block of Red Dog road in Nevada City. The caller said he had gotten into a fight with his tenant, who shared the house with him. The tenant was accused of having drugs in the house and the land lord 35 year Randell Dillon wanted the tenant out, so according to Sheriff Keith Royal   Dillon says “he messed him up. ” Sheriff Royal says Deputies were met in the drive way of the home where Dillon was arrested. Deputies found the victim, an unnamed 34 year old male, who had been severely beaten and he was transported to the hospital for medical evaluation. Deputies later interviewed the victim who had a much different story that began with Dillon playing his stereo loudly enough for the victim to knock on his door asking him to turn it down and that is when Dillon became enraged.

“The suspect was playing his radio in his bedroom very loud so they couldn’t watch television and when he went to knock on the bedroom door, apparently the suspect became very angry and aggressive and that’s when the confrontation occurred. Apparently he head butted our victim initially. The victim fell to the ground and was kicked numerous times about the head and received substantial injuries.”

Dillon was charged with Battery doing serious bodily injury and violation of parole and was booked into the Wayne Brown correctional Facility.
