Arcata parents arrested, child sent to Oakland hospital

Arcata parents arrested, child sent to Oakland hospital
The parents of a 3-month-old Arcata boy were arrested Thursday after the child was brought to the emergency room with severe injuries.

Michelle Darlene Thompson, 34, and Brandon Scott Santiago, 21, both of Arcata, were arrested and booked into Humboldt County jail on suspicion of willful injury to a child and corporal injury to a child, according to the Arcata Police Department....

The child was flown to Oakland Children's Hospital due to the severity of the injuries, according to police.

Sgt. Ben Whetstine said the APD cannot release the nature of the injuries....


  1. Someone should give the DA a Zoltar fortune telling machine. He could replace the default cards with plea deal cards. It would really streamline operations. Install it down at the county jail. No one would have to leave his or her office to do any wrist slapping. A deputy could read the card over the phone. Easy.

  2. Anything new on this case?
