Synopsis: 
On 02-21-2020 at about 2:12 PM Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to contact an adult female regarding a domestic violence incident that had occurred a few days earlier. 

The adult female was contacted via telephone and agreed to meet with Deputies at an undisclosed location in the Brooktrails subdivision in Willits, California. 

Deputies met with the adult female and learned she had been physically assaulted by her husband (Tavion Johnson) a few days earlier. 

Deputies learned the adult female was staying at friend’s residence during the time of the incident.  At about 10:00 PM that day, Johnson showed up at the residence and pushed his way inside when the adult female answered the door.  An argument ensued between the adult female and Johnson.
 
The argument escalated and Johnson threw his vehicle keys at the adult female striking her in the face causing visible injuries.  Johnson eventually left and the incident went unreported until 02-21-2020.
 
Deputies further learned Johnson was on Mendocino County Probation and a temporary restraining order had been issued, prior to the incident, protecting the adult female from Johnson. 

Deputies later located Johnson in the city of Willits on 02-21-2020 at about 5:00 PM.

Johnson was arrested on the listed charges and booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $25,000.00 bail.
