Yolo prosecutors charge Davis teen with hate crime in beating

By Darrell Smith

Yolo County prosecutors filed hate crime charges Wednesday in the March 10 beating of a Davis man.

Clayton Daniel Garzon, 19, of Davis faces three felony counts connected to the attack, including battery with great bodily injury, assault likely to produce great bodily injury and threats to cause death or great bodily injury in the district attorney's complaint.

Lawrence "Mikey" Partida, 32, was severely beaten early March 10 near 3rd and I streets in Davis as he walked home from a house party, said Davis police.

Police and first responders found a battered and unconscious Partida, who was taken to University of California, Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. He remains hospitalized.

Garzon turned himself over to Davis police March 14.

Prosecutors added hate crime enhancements for anti-gay slurs Garzon is accused of hurling before and after the attack, as well as a separate enhancement for allegedly committing a felony while on release from Solano County custody.

Garzon faces a Thursday court date in Fairfield on felony charges in Solano County for an earlier incident.

He was briefly held at Yolo County Jail in connection with the attack on Partida but has since posted bail, said Jonathan Raven, Yolo County chief deputy district attorney.

Garzon faces an April 12 arraignment in Yolo Superior Court.
