Sonora, CA — A Soulsbyville man is facing several charges after what Tuolumne County Sheriff´s Deputies are calling a display of out of control violence Wednesday.
Reports indicate when deputies arrived at the residence they found 19-year-old Russell Ankele being physically restrained by family members.
Deputies say statements taken at the scene, as well as an examination of the physical evidence revealed Ankele had threatened the lives of family members, taken a metal pole and struck one of their vehicles repeatedly, and brandished a jack handle in a threatening manner.
Ankele was transported and booked into the county jail on charges of felony death threats, vandalism, battery, and brandishing a weapon.
