MOUNTAIN AREA – Sheriff’s deputies had a busy day over the 4th of July, keeping law and order. Here is a wrap-up of some of the local happenings:
Bass Lake – A fight between several people sent a 20-year old Oakhurst man to an area hospital with a stab wound.
Deputies responded to Robin Lane at around 7:30 Thursday night. Two men were arrested shortly after the melee:
Robert Lee Huber, 20, of Oakhurst and Damian Shannon Reed, 18, of Oakhurst were transported to Madera County Department of Corrections and booked on suspicion of assault with deadly weapon.
It is not known at this hour what prompted the fight.
The investigation is ongoing.
Oakhurst – A 51-year old Mountain View woman vacationing in Bass Lake is facing charges of great bodily injury to an animal – accused of leaving a miniature Doberman inside her car in 90-95 degree heat for roughly an hour on Thursday.
At high noon the small dog was found on the floorboard under the steering wheel and “heavily panting” when a citizen, concerned for the dog’s welfare, telephoned authorities. The windows were open roughly 2 inches.
The woman admitted to leaving the dog in the car while shopping for groceries in Oakhurst.
The Mountain View woman is expected to appear in Bass Lake Court Aug. 20.
