When asked about the recent arrest, the Chief said Tyler Flanagan, age 20 and a resident of Mammoth Lakes, was arrested on Saturday, Nov 16 as a result of a police investigation conducted by the Mammoth Lakes Police Department. Earlier that day, Police were informed that Flanagan’s former girlfriend, age 17, alleged that Flanagan had assaulted her the previous evening.
During the assault he allegedly struck her in the head with his fist and pulled hair out of her head. He also allegedly “head butted” her and held her against her will. When officers became aware of the reported crime, they attempted to locate Flanagan and said he subsequently turned himself in at the Police Station.
Flanagan was arrested and booked for the following charges: Corporal punishment/injury to a child, Corporal punishment to a spouse/cohabitant, Assault with a deadly weapon, False imprisonment with violence, Violation of felony probation, and Violation of a protective order with violence. The Chief said that Flanagan was on felony probation and subject to a protective order as a result of a prior domestic violence incident with the same victim.
Flanagan was booked at Mono County Jail.
