Press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:

On June 11, 2022, at about 5:06 p.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence on the 1900 block of Ivye Lane near Blue Lake for the report of a disturbance.

While responding to the residence, deputies were notified that two of the involved parties had left the scene and deputies were provided a vehicle description. The vehicle was located traveling in the area of Chartin Road and Railroad Avenue. Deputies conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and contacted the two individuals, one of which was found to have non-life threatening injuries as a result of the incident on Ivye Lane.

During their investigation, deputies learned that a man and his roommate, 40-year-old Scraigon James Earhart-Stokes, were involved in an argument earlier that day. The man and a female acquaintance entered the shared residence just before 5 p.m. and were confronted by Earhart-Stokes, who reportedly brandished a baseball bat and threatened the two. The man fled to the woman’s vehicle. Earhart-Stokes reportedly followed the man and an argument ensued. At some point during this altercation, Earhart-Stokes reportedly shattered the vehicle’s windshield with the bat.

Deputies located Earhart-Stokes at the Ivye Lane residence and he was taken into custody without incident. Earhart-Stokes was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on charges of criminal threats (PC 422), brandishing a deadly weapon (PC417(A)(1)) and felony vandalism (PC 594(B)(1)).

This case is still under investigation.

Anyone with information about this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.
