Sheriff Keith Royal said one victim attempted to run when he spotted sheriff’s officers arrive at the 76 station but was apprehended quickly as a result of broken ribs apparently received during the assault. While questioning the victims, officers were able to piece together a story that had begun when the victims tried to hold collateral from the suspect who allegedly owed them money.

The victims and suspect agreed to meet at the Radio Shack parking lot in the Brunswick Basin in Grass Valley. The suspect, Marques Garland, did not come to the meeting alone and things quickly got out of hand.

How many times is this guy going to be arrested before he's finally held accountable? You'd think this one would stick! Come on D.A. - do your job.
