Deputies sent to her residence learned she had suffered a broken tooth during the domestic incident that dragged on over a period of several hours. Rocha had left before the deputies arrived.

Rochester police officers spotted him getting into his vehicle Friday at the Oak Terrace Estates Mobile Home Park. When Rocha stopped at a nearby convenience store, the officers tried to arrest him but he took off on foot. Officers caught up with him but had to use a Taser to take him into custody. Some meth and an airsoft gun were later found in his vehicle.
