GOLETA, Calif. -- Deputies were dispatched to the 7400 block of San Blanco on reports of a domestic dispute. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department told Central Coast News the argument was between a mother and her son. The suspect was tracked down and arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and other felony charges.
Officers got the call about the dispute around 9:00 a.m. During the argument the son pushed the mom and hit her with a sports racket, then smashed her cell phone, according to deputies.
The mother involved with the dispute met deputies along with her 14-year old daughter off site to report the incident. The woman told officers her son was in the house where he could have had access to firearms.
The SWAT team arrived and surrounded the home. A deputy who has previous contact with the suspect at an address on San Milano Drive went to the home to find the suspect. The residents told deputies the man wasn't there. Officers conducted a probation search and found him in the home. He was arrested and taken into custody without incident around 12:30 p.m.
While deputies were inside they also found a loaded .22 caliber rifle that was modified to be concealed.
Deputies arrested 20-year old Felipe Barrera for assault with a deadly weapon, destroying a device to prevent someone from calling police and committing a felony while out on bail. Barrera was also booked into the county jail on several outstanding warrants.
Deputies also arrested a 17-year old man at a home on San Milano Drive for not being truthful with investigators.
