Ex-husband suspected in ramming truck, trying to run over new boyfriend

Marcus Alavazo, 43, of Corning

The Tehama County Sheriff's Office arrested a man who allegedly tried to run over his ex-wife's new boyfriend, Wednesday morning.

Officials said deputies responded to 16060 Oakridge Road in Rancho Tehama Reserve around 3 a.m.

Dispatchers were told that Marcus Alavazo, 43, of Corning, was ramming his truck into his ex-wife's new boyfriend's vehicle multiple times. The ex-wife also said that Alavazo had fired a gun at least twice in front of her home.

Before deputies arrived Alavazo had left the area.

Once deputies arrived in the area they determined that Alavazo was the primary aggressor and had rammed his vehicle at least twice before trying to run over the new boyfriend with his truck.

Deputies reported that they did not locate a weapon, but evidence suggested that it was a BB gun.

Alavazo was booked into the Tehama County Jail for criminal threats, assault with deadly weapon, and hit and run.
