Man arrested after domestic violence dispute at motel

A man ended up in jail after he reportedly hit his girlfriend in the face during an argument at a Nevada City motel.

Nevada City Police officers were dispatched to the motel in the 400 block of Railroad Avenue at just after 2:30 a.m. Saturday after a staff member called 911.

According to dispatch reports, the staff member said she had gotten multiple calls from guests alerting her to a problem in a room.

Officers arrived and talked to the female victim, who had visible facial injuries, said Sgt. Chad Ellis.

She reportedly told officers she had argued with her boyfriend over the fact that he kept leaving her in the room alone while he went to look for work.

They argued and he reportedly hit her in the face, chipping her tooth and lacerating her lip.

The room was in disarray, with a hole in the wall and blood on the sheets, Ellis said. The suspect, identified at Carter Ross Latimer, had left the scene, and a BOLO was issued.

Latimer eventually contacted Nevada City Police by phone and agreed to meet them, and was taken into custody.

He was booked on suspicion of spousal abuse and battery causing serious bodily injury, and was released on $50,000 bail.
