According to official arrest records, Sonoma County Supervisor Efren Carrillo was arrested in San Diego Monday night for "Battery with Serious Bodily Injury" and "Disturbing the Peace by Fighting."

In a report by Jenna Lane on KGO this morning, Carrillo stated he was protecting some female acquaintances.

We contacted Carrillo's office, which confirmed the arrest, and released Carrillo's following statement:

“I was in San Diego for Labor Day weekend on my own personal business. I was socializing with a group of friends when rowdies approached our group and harassed women in our group. I stepped in to protect them. I’m anxious to tell my side of the story during legal proceedings.”

Supervisor Carrillo is traveling on a prescheduled trip and will be out of the country until Tuesday, Sept. 18th, when he returns for a regularly scheduled board meeting.

Strangely, the Press Democrat doesn't have the story yet. (Update: It's up now.)

The arrest occurred at 2:10am at 500 Fourth Ave. in San Diego. That's the location of Fluxx nightclub, where on Sunday night, Oakland rap legend Too $hort performed. In this photo from the show on Fluxx's Facebook page, a man who looks a lot like Carrillo can be seen in the background, wearing a blue shirt, which matches the arrest log description.

We'll update with details as they come in.
