Remember when riverbar parties and bonfires involved
hanging out, playing guitars, roasting marshmallows–
and not beating the crap out of people?

From the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:

bonfire2On Sunday, February 17 at approximately 1:00 a.m., the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from a citizen who reported three males were at a large party in the area of East Ferry Road in Ferndale and were assaulting several people.

Sheriff’s Deputies, California Highway Patrol officers, and Ferndale Police responded to the scene.  While deputies were enroute they were advised the three male suspects were attempting to leave the area in a dark colored KIA Rio.

A Ferndale Police Officer spotted the Kia SUV near
Fernbridge and stopped it.  Deputies and CHP officers
joined the Ferndale Officer and detained the three males
who were in the vehicle.

bridgeThe officers saw the occupants had fresh injuries to them.  They also showed signs of alcohol intoxication.  The officers could also see open alcoholic containers in the vehicle.

The three subjects were identified as:

  • Douglas Wayne Flowers, 43-years-old, and from Fortuna;
  • Curtis Flowers, 22-years-old, from Fortuna;
  • Christopher James Hanly, 23-years-old, from McKinleyville

All three men were were detained.  To note, Douglas Flowers is the father of Curtis Flowers; Curtis was the driver of the KIA Rio.  Medical personnel were requested to respond to the scene and treat them for their injuries.

Deputies then contacted witness and the victims.

They were told by the witness and victims that the Flowers and Hanly showed up at the party on the Ferndale River bar intoxicated.

The suspects shouted “White Pride”, as they walked around through
the crowd.  They were asked to calm down by party attendees; Curtis
Flowers started pushing people and challenging them to fight.

bonfire3An 18-year-old female attempted to leave the party in a Toyota Pickup truck
because of Curtis Flowers’ behavior.  As she got into the truck, Curtis Flowers
walked up to the truck and swung the truck door open.  In doing so, the door struck another 18-year-old female who was watching what was occurring and standing near the pickup truck.

When the female who was struck by the door made a comment about being struck by the door to Curtis Flowers, he punched her in the face with a closed fist.  When the injured female got back up, Douglas Flowers punched her in the face knocking her back to the ground.  The female immediately fell to the
ground a second time.

Meantime, the female who had been in the truck exited the truck to assist the assaulted and injured female.  She was punched in the face, too, which knocked her to the ground and unconscious.

A 16-year-old male was close by and came to both females’ aid.  He was was punched in the eye by Curtis Flowers.  Then all three suspects– Curtis Flowers, Douglas Flowers and Christopher Hanly– began punching him in the face after knocking him to the ground.

Deputies could see the 16-year-old’s eye was swollen almost shut.  One of the 18-year-old females received a broken jaw which required surgery at a local hospital.  The other female refused medical attention.

Curtis Flowers

Curtis Flowers

Curtis Flowers was transported by ambulance and admitted to Redwood Memorial Hospital for a cut on his neck; however he fled from the hospital the same day, February 17, at around 5:00 p.m.

Fortuna Police checked the area for him but were unable to locate him.  A ‘Be-on-The-Lookout’ was broadcast to local law enforcement for his apprehension.  Curtis Flowers is on State Parole for a conviction of Assault with a Deadly Weapon.  Now, he’s wanted for:

  • Assault Causing Great Bodily Injury
  • Driving under the Influence
  • Assault and Battery
  • Violation of Parole

Douglas Flowers and Christopher Hanly were both arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility.

Douglas Flowers was booked for Assault Causing Great Bodily Injury and Public Intoxication.  His bail was set at $50,000.00.

stoopidMr. Hanly was booked for Assault, Probation Violation, and Public Intoxication.  For reasons we don’t fully understand given his probation status, he was surprisingly released on his own recognizance in spite of his apparent stupidity.

The Sheriff’s Office will be increasing patrols in the Eel River area for the foreseeable future to help curtail parties and other criminal activity.

We can only hope Probation and Parole Agents can supervise their clients as well.

 

Anyone with information for the Sheriff’s Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 707-445-7251, or the Sheriffs Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539, the HCSO said.
