Yucca Valley man released from jail, arrested same day after fight with family


A man was released from jail on Sunday only to be arrested again later that day after a fight broke out at a family gathering.

Adrian Morales, 29, was released after serving a sentence for battery. He was at home drinking beers with his family on Juarez Drive in Yucca Valley when family members say he began talking about visiting an ex-girlfriend who has a criminal protective order against him, according to Z107.7.

His family tried to discourage him from doing so and Morales reacted by destroying property and arguing with them. A brother of Morales tried to stop him, but Morales head-butted him. The family says Morales later bit another brother in the arm and threw him into a wall.

Family members were able to restrain Morales before deputies arrived. He was arrested for investigation of battery with serious injuries.
