Vallejo Man Arrested in Napa After Inciting Brawl at Funeral

Dixon man arrested on suspicion of robbery, domestic abuse and destroying a cell phone.

A Vallejo man was arrested after he was accused of inciting a brawl at a funeral at Tulocay Cemetery on Friday.

James Lamb-Nett, a 28-year-old parolee, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a controlled substance – oxycodone - and drug paraphernalia. Napa Police received a call about the fight at 2:59 p.m., according to a police shift activity log, and numerous witness at the funeral reported that Lamb-Nett struck the victim with a large flashlight before leaving the funeral. His vehicle was spotted in downtown Napa where he was arrested.

In a separate incident, Napa Police arrested 18-year-old Jose Sanchez of Dixon on suspicion of robbery, domestic battery and destruction of a wireless communication device.

Napa Police received a call at 12:43 p.m. of what was originally reported as a robbery on the 1100 block of Shetler Avenue. When officers arrived, an investigation revealed that Sanchez supposedly held down the victim and took away her phone so she couldn’t call 911. Sanchez fled the scene, but was tracked down traveling on southbound Highway 29 around 1:35 p.m. He was taken into custody without incident.

Also in a separate incident, cops arrested a juvenile after a probation search on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance and a probation violation after they discovered oxycodone pills that weren’t prescribed to him.


A 21-year-old Vallejo woman was arrested under suspicion of stealing a vehicle that was left idling at the Chevron gas station on Imola Avenue early Friday morning.

According to a police activity log, Trisha Towne hopped stole the victim’s vehicle, and was followed by the victim as she headed south towards Jameson Canyon Road, where Napa Sheriffs intercepted the vehicles involved. Towne was taken into custody and booked into the Napa County Detention Center.

I don't know if they're idiots, but they certainly are sleazy.

Well, being a parolee and having oxycodone and drug paraphernalia at a funeral and trying to strike someone with a flash light there isn't being sleazy that's just an idiot.
