Press Release 1-25-2013 Felony DUI

On 1-24-13 at approx. 1520 hours, UPD officers were dispatched to the area of the 300 block of Talmage Rd., regarding numerous transient subjects fighting.  While officers were en route to the area, it was reported that some of the involved parties were fleeing the area E/B on Talmage Rd. in a tan 1999 GMC Jimmy.  Upon officer’s arrival to the area, officers located the Jimmy in the 400 block of Talmage Rd., where it had been involved in a traffic collision.

The Jimmy was located on top of some bushes located in the parking lot of the Talmage Office Park (419 Talmage Rd.).  The vehicle had lost control and spun sideways into a vehicle that was parked in the parking lot at the location.  The force of the impact caused the front end of the parked vehicle (2006 Dodge Ram 2500) to be moved two parking spaces away from where it was originally parked.  Business signs and the landscaping at the Talmage Office Park were also damaged as a result of the collision.

The driver of the Jimmy (23 year old Paul Stephen Golyer) was located at the scene.  Golyer’s passenger (54 year old female) was being tended to by an off duty City of Ukiah Fire Department Captain and his son.  The passenger had sustained a laceration to her head and was complaining of neck pain.  The passenger was transported to the Ukiah Valley Medical Center by the Ukiah Fire Department.  Golyer displayed objective signs of alcohol intoxication and was subsequently arrested at the scene for 23153(a) CVC and 23153(b) CVC.  Both vehicles sustained major damage and had to be towed from the location.

Paul Stephen Golyer (transient from Arizona) was transported and lodged at the county jail for the following charges:

  1. 23153(a) CVC-Felony DUI traffic collision resulting in an injury      to another person.
  2. 23153(b) CVC-Felony DUI traffic collision resulting in an injury      to another person while having a BAC of .08% or more.

The additional charge of 12500(a) CVC (unlicensed driver) will be requested to be charged by the Mendocino County District Attorney’s office.
