CASA GRANDE — A Florence man is facing domestic violence charges after he allegedly threw several items around a bedroom, punched a TV and damaged a door.

According to Pinal County Superior Court records, Miguel S. Garibo, 20, is charged with domestic violence criminal damage and domestic violence disorderly conduct.

At 1:02 a.m. on June 16, officers responded to a disturbance at a home in the 2300 block of North Oakmont Lane in Casa Grande.

A woman at the home told officers that Garibo had thrown furniture around a bedroom, causing around $1,000 in damage to the drywall, breaking a lamp, punching a TV and throwing a basket of clothes around the room.

He then allegedly attacked her, wrestling her to the ground in the living room and biting her on the shoulder. Officers noted that there was blood on the woman’s shoulders and back. Another woman living in the home was able to pull Garibo off the first woman before he allegedly put her in a headlock.

When Garibo started loading his things into his truck, the women locked him out of the house. Garibo then allegedly kicked the front door, causing the lower strike plate on the door to fall off and damaging the threshold.

When he was unable to reenter the home, Garibo left in his truck. An officer spotted the vehicle driving with its headlights off. After the officer spotted the truck, Garibo allegedly turned on the headlights and sped off faster than the posted 45 mph speed limit. The officer stopped him at Pinal Avenue and took him into custody. Officers estimate that he may have done more than $4,000 worth of damage to the home and items in the home.
