Domestic Disputes Involving Police

Couple Arrested For Marital Dispute

Sometimes being in a relationship is hard however, dating is the happiest time of your relationship. If you’re having some major issues just while dating, maybe it’s time to go your separate ways because things only get ten thousand times harder from here on out.

Police have a tough job. Not only do they have to deal with major things like human trafficking and bank robberies, they also have to deal with people’s personal lives and domestic dispute calls. However, sometimes those what should be private arguments at home turn into some pretty scary confrontations.

According to reports,  a woman and her fiance were bother arrested on a Sunday after a domestic violence incident that ended up with a standoff with a police. How the heck does things get that out of control?

Police Answer Domestic Violence Call

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said that just before four o’clock that evening, thirty-nine year old, Monique McMahon had call 911 to say that she and her fiance, Daren Dahlgren had gotten into a fist fight. She had ran to a neighbor’s house to call the police for help. Which is good that the neighbors were there to let her use their phone.

The deputies got to the scene at the San Tan Valley home and tried to make contact with fifty-one year old, Daren. However, when he greeted the officers he had a gun pointed to the ground which automatically escalated the already tense situation. When the deputies asked the man to come outside he shook his head and closed the door.

The woman told the authorities that she had locked herself inside of the bathroom as she and her fiance were fighting because she wanted to leave the home. However he had kicked the bathroom door in and pushed her into the bathtub. He then started to hit her. Luckily she was eventually able to escape his assaults and was able to make it to the neighbors house safely.

Daren eventually came out of the house and was arrested for charges of domestic violence assault, disorderly conduct, preventing and individual from calling 911 during an emergency, criminal damage and threatening and intimidating.  Sounds like he’ll have to behave himself for quite some time if he wants to see freedom anytime soon.

As the deputies continued their investigation they found out that the female victim maybe wasn’t quite so innocent. She apparently had show the neighbors a baggie that had appeared to contain methamphetamine and asked if she could flush it down their toilet. For whatever reason, she ended up putting the baggie into a diaper bag which was later seized by the authorities and the baggie tested positive for meth. McMahon was later booked and put into the Pinal County Jail on charges of possession of a dangerous drug as well as possession of paraphernalia.

Probably not her smartest move to get methed out and fight her with man and take the drugs with her. Might want to consider a new lifestyle when she gets out of jail.

Horseplay turned to homicide charges when a pedestrian was killed Thursday night after being pushed into the road and hit by a vehicle, Phoenix police said.

The incident occurred just before 7 p.m. near Dunlap and 19th avenues, according to Sgt. Alan Pfohl with the Phoenix Police Department.

Pfohl said 23-year-old Terrance Veale was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

After further investigation, officials said they determined Veale and Tyrone David Turner were on the sidewalk engaging in horseplay.

Turner was arrested on suspicion of negligent homicide.

No other details were immediately available. The investigation is ongoing

Hiring the Right Homicide Lawyer in Phoenix

Having a skilled homicide defense attorney is important in any criminal case, but it is even more critical in a murder case. To properly defend a client against a murder charge, a defense lawyer must be prepared to effectively challenge the prosecution’s evidence. To do so, a Phoenix Murder Defense Attorney must be prepared to effectively cross-examine the prosecution’s witnesses, including any expert witnesses.

Expert Witnesses

In some cases, a Phoenix Homicide Defense Attorney may need to use expert witnesses on behalf of the defendant to challenge forensic evidence, ballistics evidence and other scientific evidence presented by the prosecution. We are prepared to do so and have worked with expert witnesses in the past to provide a vigorous defense on our clients’ behalf.

In addition to fighting your charges at trial (or seeking a case dismissal for lack of probable cause), we can also negotiate with the prosecution to seek a favorable plea agreement. A plea agreement might involve a plea to a lesser offense or an agreement on sentencing that will significantly reduce the penalties you face.

Homicide Defense Strategy

We will take the time to talk to witnesses, investigate what really happened in your case, understand what evidence is in the prosecution’s possession, look for holes in the prosecution’s case, and determine if the police violated your constitutional rights or made other critical errors that can be used to your advantage.

We are committed to raising a strong and comprehensive defense on your behalf. Depending on the facts of your case, the following defenses and strategies may be helpful:

  • Self-Defense
  • Insanity
  • Mistaken Identity
  • Suppression of Evidence
  • Challenging DNA, Fingerprint Evidence and other Forensic Evidence
  • Challenging Ballistics Evidence (Relating to Firearms and Bullets)
  • Challenging the Reliability of an Eyewitness
  • Challenging Whether the Evidence Sustains a Murder Conviction
  • Negotiation with the Prosecution to Determine if a Plea Agreement Could

Significantly Minimize the Charges or Penalties you Face

Phoenix Crimes

Phoenix Police Searching for Woman

Starting a fire in a public place probably isn’t the smartest thing in the world. You’ll eventually get caught. Plus, that’s just plain rude.

The Phoenix police are needing help and asking for the public’s help finding a woman who recently started a fire in a local Phoenix restaurant.

According to reports, a woman entered a Los Toritos Mexican Restaurant which was located near 32nd Street and McDowell Road.

The police said that the suspect could be seen on surveillance video asking  an employee for a key to the bathroom and once inside she poured gasoline and then lit it on fire.

She then fled the restaurant in a dark colored pickup truck. The truck was waiting in an alley just north of the business.

The woman is described as being a Hispanic or as a white female. She was between twenty-two to thirty years old. She was described as 130-150 pounds and had dark colored hair. At the time she had baggy clothes on and a light colored knit hat. She was also reportedly carrying a large black purse. Police think that’s what she was carrying the gasoline in.

Phoenix Man Dead

Police say a Phoenix man was shot dead after confronting a suspected burglar outside his neighbor’s home late Wednesday.

The victim, whom police have not named, approached the burglar just before 10 p.m. in the 13000 block of North 34th Avenue, according to Sgt. Vince Lewis, a Phoenix police spokesman.

The burglar pulled out a firearm and shot the man before fleeing in a vehicle, Lewis said..

Phoenix Domestic Abuse

Phoenix Principal and Wife Accused of Abuse

When you think of school, you think of safety. You don’t think of some one assaulting someone. However, according to reports, a Phoenix high school principal as well as his wife are both are accused of assault.

Ricardo Cordova is the principal at Carl Hayden High School.  Brisa Cordova, his wife is a teacher at Trevor Browne High School.

According to police their arrests come from a domestic violence issue at their home. They are now facing charges for misdemeanor assault.

“Phoenix Union is aware of the recent arrests. This is a police matter.  We will make the appropriate steps when and if necessary to address this issue internally, and ultimately make a decision that is in the best interest of our students, staff and community.”

Man is Dead After Domestic Abuse Call

A domestic abuse case can always turn pretty ugly, but one doesn’t usually end in death.

However, according to the police a man is dead after a car chase. The car chase stemmed from a domestic violence call in Sahuarita.

Police said that Herrera tried to run them over in a small car, however they since have rescinded that claim.

Herrera was accused of assaulting other people and being heavily intoxicated before beginning the chase.  The chase ended rather quickly, just five miles away in the 1300 block of Calle de la Plaza. Herrera had a gun and there were three officers were involved in the shooting. Luckily no officers were injuried but Herrera was pronounced dead at the scene.


News Release Statement:

Officers gave verbal commands for Herrera to raise his hands; however, he raised a loaded 9mm pistol, fired at least one shot while sitting in the driver’s seat. It’s unknown the exact direction the gun was pointed when it was fired, but Herrera then pointed the gun toward officers. Officers returned fire, striking Herrera. Herrera was the sole occupant of the car and there are no other outstanding suspects.

Arizona Athletes And Sexual Abuse Cases

Former Coach Arrested for Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is horrible. However, one of the lowest forms of abuse, is coming from someone you trust. Whether it’s from a family member or from a teacher you’re scared for life.

A former Scottsdale cheerleader coach is now arrested for accusations saying he was molesting two of his former athletes.

There are new court documents that show that twenty-one year old, Yohel Gattaz will now face one count of child molestation, as well as two counts of sexual conduct with a minor, two counts of sexual abuse, and one count of aggravated assault on a  minor. Pretty serious charges.

According to reports, Gattaz had worked at the Desert Storm Elite in Scottsdale for a little less than a year. The incidents were said to have happened between January and March 2016. Eric Contreras who is the owner of the gym, confirmed that Gattaz was fired in May.


Eric Contreras Statement:

It was difficult because we do extensive background checks on all our employees and there was no criminal record. We take very good care of our kids and our families. It’s a safe place for children it always has been and always will be.


The court paperwork showed that the Phoenix Police had recieved a report about the sexual abuse on May 17th. They then contacted the victims mother. The mother made a report to the police that there could have been another child that had fallen as prey to Yohel. The other victim’s mother contacted the Scottsdale Police Department.

The girls were both fourteen years old. They both told the police that they had been inappropriately touched by Gattaz on separate incidents. One of the girls say that they had tried to roll away from Gattaz but he grabbed her and pulled her back towards him.

The other victim was upset and told the police “This isn’t right, this is illegal”.


Phoenix Girls Suffer from Sexual Abuse


In the court records, the locations of where the girls suffered the sexual abuse was not listed. There were some e-mails sent to the parents though that stated that the incident happened off the gym’s property. The e-mail also said that all of the Desert Storm Elite employees have to pass a background check. Gattaz passed his background check.

The owner is very adamant about the abuse not taking place at the gym property. He also makes it clear that nothing like this has ever happened at the gym before.

The parents wrote to the local news, they were worried that Gattaz could have even more victims that might be scared to come forward. He was very close to the teens at the gym and he did have to spend a lot of time on the road with them for competitions.

Gattaz was arrested on June 16th and he immediately requested an attorney. Since he asked for an attorney he was not asked any questions.

The mother of two, Pam White said that one of her daughters were also coached by Gattaz last  year. She also said that she had never had any issues with the gym. She said that Gattaz was very professional.


Pam White’s Statement about Yohel:

I’ve always had a positive experience at the gym. The gym has become a second family for my daughters and I’ve always felt I’ve been very well informed by the gym with information parents needed to note.


She also said said that she will wait until after the police finish with their investigation before she will make the decision to let Yohel coach her child again or not.

Yohel’s attorney, Matt Hilscher said that “it’s important to remember at this point these are merely allegations” he also said that since Yohel is in ” this line of work makes him susceptible to these types of allegations”.

The online jail records show that a judge had set Gattaz bone at $150,000. His next court appearance is on July 1st.

Homicide Shooting

Woman Missing After Complex Shooting


Shootings rarely end well. Someone is hurt or killed and the suspect usually flees. Shooting cases can sometimes go unsolved for quite a while.

A lot of shooting cases become homicides pretty quickly. A homicide is when someone deliberately and unlawfully kills someone. Which makes it easy to understand why a shooting turns into a homicide. Usually you aren’t shooting at someone to do them any good. A shooting is to harm someone.

The Phoenix Police Department is now looking for a woman who can not be found. They’re searching for her because a man was shot and killed at an apartment complex.

According to the reports, a one year old child as well as a woman, Veronica Huerta Brown were not found after a man was killed on a Saturday night. The man was shot at an apartment complex, which is located near the 12th Street and Indian School Road.

The investigators said that the child and Brown were in a vehicle with the victim when the victim was then ordered out of the vehicle by two men. According to the police, the men shot the victim and then took the child from him.

At this time, it’s unclear if the woman and child were abducted by the suspects or whether they fled the scene separately.

The Phoenix Police gave an update about the situation on Sunday morning. They say that the child was luckily found safely however, Brown had not been found at this time. They are worried about Brown’s safety and are searching for her.

Police spokesman, James Holmes Statement:

We believe that all three, the victim, Veronica and (the child), arrived at this apartment complex, just before the shooting, together in a vehicle.

Holmes gave a description of the shooters, saying that they were described as Hispanic men. The men seemed to be at the apartment complex and they ordered the victim to get out of the car with the child.

Holmes’ Statement:

At that point, the suspect grabbed the child and fired on the victim and took the child and he left.

There were witnesses at the scene and they told the Phoenix Police that they had hear at least four gunshots.

Neighbor, Jennalee Yazzie’s Statement:

It was like, ‘Pom pom,’ and then, ‘Pom pom,’.


The police have no definite answers on whether the woman and the child were abducted by the suspects or if they actually fled the scene separately.

Holmes’ Statement:

We believe that all three, the victim, Veronica and (the child), arrived at this apartment complex, just before the shooting, together in a vehicle.

Holmes also said that the two shooters were already at the apartment complex and then ordered the victim to get out of the car with the child.

Holmes said that at that point of the situation, the suspect quickly grabbed the child and fired on the victim. He then took the child and left.

Neighbor, Bryan Cunningham’s Statement:

He said it was a very small white hatchback, is what he saw. And [the car] was moving quite fast, getting right out of there after the shots and the screams.


The witnesses also told the police that there were at least two male suspects that got away from the complex. They were in a 90’s model vehicle that is either a white Honda or could be a white Taurus.

At this time, it’s not clear what relationship the victim had with the two suspects or with the missing Brown woman, who police are still searching for. Police also don’t know what the relation was to the woman and child with the suspects or if there was one at all.

Holmes Statement:

We have to consider that both this female and this child, based on the violence that occurred here this afternoon, could very well be in danger.


Police are now looking for the 90’s model vehicle that fled the scene. The incident happened in the back parking lot of an apartment complex.

If anyone has any information at all as to where Brown may be, they are encouraged to please call the Phoenix Police Violent Crimes Bureau at (602) 262-6141. Of course, as always calls can remain anonymous.


Drive-By Shooting in Phoenix

A drive by shooting that happened on the outside of a Phoenix bar could have been pretty devastating. The police are still looking for answers regarding this case.

According to the news reports, there was a light colored Jeep that was seen outside of the Charley’s Place Bar at the 43rd Avenue and Thunderbird Road which happened after three o’clock in the morning on August 18, 2015.

According to a report there was an person in a Jeep SUV who reportedly fired several rifle rounds into the bar. Luckily, no one was injured during the shooting.

Silent Witness is offering a reward for any information that may be helpful in this unsolved case. They are offering $1,000.00.

If you have any information on this case, please contact the Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.


Hopefully the shootings in Phoenix slow down and end in less fatalities like this drive by bar shooting. Shootings are scary but it’s a little less scary when no one is hurt. Which is rare in a shooting, especially in a drive by shooting.
