On Friday October 30th police responded to a call that a Disc Jockey had gotten into a dispute with the owner of a restaurant where he was to perform in the City of Sonoma. Officers were informed that the DJ, 28-year-old Scott Woebcke of Sonoma, had poured a pitcher of beer on an expensive turntable at Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack on Broadway after getting into an argument with the proprietor.
When police responded they found Mr. Woebcke agitated and yelling in the street. They then got word that someone had entered Shiso restaurant on Broadway, damaged some property and attacked restaurant owner and chef Ed Metcalf as he tried to subdue the vandal. Police took Mr. Woebcke to both restaurants and he was identified as the suspect who soaked the turntable and committed battery on Mr. Metcalf.
Mr. Woebcke was arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism, battery and for being drunk in public. He was booked into the Sonoma County Jail. If convicted for the felony he faces the possibility of going to state prison, or being placed on probation with possible county jail time. In California battery and being drunk in public are both misdemeanors and carry potential jail sentences, fines and could result in court ordered alcohol or anger management classes.
