February 13, 2017 |

An Elk Grove man is in custody at the Sacramento County Jail today after he was arrested on suspicion of several charges ranging from domestic violence to possession of counterfeiting equipment.

On the early afternoon of Sunday, February 12, Visay Boungavath (pictured above), 36, was in an argument with his victim that became a physical confrontation. Boungavath allegedly smashed the windshield of the victim's vehicle and pushed the victim into a wall causing visible injuries in the presence of a small child.

Responding Elk Grove Police officers detained Boungavath and determined he was on parole. A search of his vehicle led to the discovery of counterfeit $100 bills, checkbooks not belonging to him and electronic equipment.

Boungavath was arrested on felony charges including corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant, domestic violence, false imprisonment, fictitious checks, making/possessing counterfeiting plates, child endangerment, and misdemeanor vandalism. He is scheduled for arraignment on Wednesday, February 13 and has bail set at $630,000 but is not eligible for release.
