22-year-old Orlin Isaac Vareala-Zuniga had a domestic altercation with his father, Orlin Joel Vareala-Media, at their Cedarmont Road residence on May 10th. When officers arrived, Media advised them that Zuniga had gone out to drink and had asked to be picked up. Media initially refused due to his son’s level of impairment until he told him he was going to walk home.

After picking him up, an argument ensued in the car, which escalated once they got to their house. Zuniga started hitting the windows before jumping atop the car, kicking the windshield, and breaking the glass. Media stated when he tried to stop his son from further damaging his car, Zuniga began striking him in the face, leaving visible redness. Dereck Rosales-Carbanal, a witness, stated he observed the attack after he heard the commotion outside his residence. He also corroborated Media’s statements. Zuniga was then taken into custody for domestic assault and vandalism.
