Vandalism plea deal for grocery store run-in
November 09, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Fernando Sanchez

A 40 year-old Half Moon Bay man accused of smashing a car window with a golf club because he thought another man groped his wife’s backside pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vandalism in return for time served.

Fernando Alvarado Sanchez changed his plea Friday in return for the dismissal of other charges and 32 days jail with the same amount of credit. He received no probation.

Prosecutors say the Oct. 23 confrontation started when another 40-year-old man accidentally bumped the purse of a woman at the Mercado Mi Familia Market in Half Moon Bay. The next day, he was in his car in the parking lot of the 99 Cent Store when Sanchez reportedly approached him screaming threats.

The man locked himself in his car and Sanchez reportedly struck the side and window of the car several times with the golf club.

Sheriff’s deputies arrived and arrested Sanchez.

Sanchez claimed the victim had grabbed his wife’s buttocks and denied the threats and hits. Deputies found a golf club in his car.

He had been in custody on $10,000 bail.
