Davis man free from custody despite bail increase

By Darrell Smith

The Davis man accused of hate crimes in an early morning attack last month near downtown Davis is free from custody.

Clayton Daniel Garzon, 20, of Davis, posted $520,000 bail March 28 and was released from Yolo County Jail in Woodland, according to court records.

He is accused of beating Lawrence Partida, 32, near Third and I streets in Davis early March 10, using anti-gay slurs during the incident. The attack occurred when Partida was returning from a house party.

Garzon left custody one day after a Yolo Superior Court commissioner increased his bail nearly sevenfold. Prosecutors argued at a bail hearing that Garzon was violent under the influence of alcohol and noted he was out on bail when the alleged Davis attack occurred.

He faces felony battery and threat charges with hate crime enhancements in connection with the incident. He is next scheduled to appear in court April 12.

A preliminary hearing has been set for April 26.
