Monday morning, Officers responded to the intersection of South Missouri Avenue and Wilkerson Street in reference to a known subject with three known active warrants for his arrest walking down the street. The three warrants were all issued in March of 2024. The investigation began after an incident in December of 2023. The reporting party stated she had gone to a grocery store and when she came back home, her boyfriend at the time began yelling at her. When she attempted to leave, he grabbed her and told her she wasn’t going anywhere. He then allegedly elbowed her in the mouth and fled the residence. The reporting party had visibly loose teeth, which Officers captured on body camera. Two days later, the suspect returned to the apartment of the reporting party. She attempted to stop him from entering, but he pushed his way inside. After an argument, he allegedly called her a “bitch” and backhanded her, leaving a mark on the left side of her face. Officers noted at the time seeing the redness on the reporting party’s face. Officers spoke with the suspect about a month later on the phone, and he denied any violence perpetrated by him. In January of 2024, the suspect again went to the reporting party’s apartment. She stated he was waiting for her on the steps, and when she attempted to push past him, she slipped. He grabbed her, and hit her in the face. Officers noted they did see redness around her left eye. When asked why he would have done this, the reporting party stated the suspect was upset that she wouldn’t drop charges from the previous incident involving domestic assault. Brandon Lee Koch, 40, Homeless, was arrested on April 8th for three warrants containing three charges of felony Domestic Assault in the 3rd Degree, one charge of felony Tampering With a Witness in a Felony Prosecution, and one charge of felony Burglary in the 1st Degree.

*Casenet 210478369 shows a conviction of Driving While Intoxicated for Guerra in Pettis County. The arrest occurred in February of 2022, and she was placed on two years’ probation in August of 2022. In May of 2023, another warrant for Driving While Intoxicated was issued, with a sentence imposed of thirty days in jail. That meant her probation was violated, and the defendant was placed on two years’ probation again, with a start date of August 2023. Since a DWI conviction is 8 points on a Missouri driver’s license (for a first conviction – 12 points are given for a second conviction), Guerra’s privileges were automatically suspended until the points were removed. If a driver accumulates a total of 8 or more points in 18 months, the Department of Revenue will suspend their driving privilege. The Department of Revenue will revoke your driving privilege for one year if you accumulate 12 or more points in 12 months.
