P. v. Negrete CA6
On the night of April 1, 2020, an argument ensued between 23-year-old defendant and his 64-year-old father. Defendant lived with the father in a studio apartment in Prunedale. Defendant was drunk and the father had consumed a couple of beers.
The father pushed defendant in the chest a few times and “[p]robably” punched defendant in the face. Defendant then hit the father in the face, stomach, and possibly one of his ribs, where he had previously been injured. The father was five feet seven inches tall and weighed about 200 pounds. Defendant was six feet one inch tall and weighed 234 pounds. The father stated that defendant was defending himself when the fight started but that the father was on the defense once “they really got into [it].” At one point while the father was trying to defend himself, he hit defendant on the back of the head with a soup bowl, which broke. The fight ended when the father told defendant to stop and defendant walked away.
