Colusa man accused of running over girlfriend jailed again
A Colusa man is behind bars again in Sutter County, accused of trying to kill his girlfriend earlier this year when police said he deliberately drove his pickup over her.
David Allen Carrion failed to appear at his Aug. 21 court hearing and was arrested on Wednesday, the Sutter County District Attorney's Office said.
Carrion, 43, was first arrested in May on attempted murder and assault charges after Yuba City police said he tried to kill his 34-year-old girlfriend on Nuestro Road.
Lt. Tom Tappe said the pair were arguing on May 23 at the Yuba Sutter Mall when the woman climbed into the bed of Carrion's pickup. He drove away with the woman in the back for about six miles before pulling over on Nuestro Road.
"He then got out of the truck and threw her onto the road," Tappe said. "He then drove over her legs, causing injury."
The woman is expected to recover, authorities said.
Carrion was released from jail pending further hearings, but was arrested again at gunpoint in Colusa County on July 12 after leading police on a high-speed chase. It ended when Carrion's pickup went into an orchard on Holloway Road, according to Appeal-Democrat archives.
Carrion also failed to appear in that case on Aug. 6 and a warrant was issued for his arrest, Colusa County Superior Court records said.
Carrion remains in custody without bail in Sutter County. A preliminary hearing is set for Sept. 13 in Sutter County Superior Court.
