The Payette County fairgrounds in New Plymouth was the site of not one, but two, reported assaults on a recent weekend.

Payette County Sheriff’s Lt. Andy Creech confirmed that the incidents took place the night of Sept. 21 at a rodeo being held at the fairgrounds in New Plymouth. The Sheriff’s Office responded to two complaints of battery within the span of two hours, the first of which happened just before

9 p.m.

Creech said one of the complaints involved a female, Jessica Ayala, 20, of Boise. Ayala had bitten one of the security guards at the event and was subsequently issued a citation for battery.

The second complaint was about a male who made an attempt to choke a security guard. The unidentified subject was trespassed off of the property by law enforcement.
