On Monday. Dec. 28, 2020, at about 11:35 p.m. Santa Clara Police Department officers were dispatched to a disturbance call at 500 S. Prescott Street in reference to someone screaming. When officers arrived, they found 34-year-old Stephanie Brewer, outside, on top of a 13-year-old male who was screaming for help, according to a statement of probable cause.
As officers removed Brewer from the child, the statement said, and attempted to place her in investigative detention, she began to scream and resist arrest. She refused to speak with officers and continued "screaming at the top of her lungs and wouldn't listen to any instructions," the statement said. The officers had to "physically carry" Brewer to be placed in a patrol car.
In order to minimize public health risk as a result of the significant increase in the number of COVID-19 positive cases in Grant County, and to comply with the current Public Health Order, the County will continue to operate with the following measures and will re-assess on Monday, February 1, 2021.
• County Government Offices that include Administration & Finance, Clerk, Assessor, Treasurer, DWI Compliance, Planning, and Probate Judge will not provide direct services to the public. The offices will operate during normally scheduled business hours, however; business will need to be conducted electronically via email, mail or by telephone. Under certain circumstances, citizens will be seen on a "by appointment only basis" by calling the respective office. As a precautionary measure to protect the public and the staff, there will be a few screening questions prior to the scheduling of an appointment.
