Former College of the Redwoods head basketball coach Aaron Hungerford, 36, was arrested Thursday evening on suspicion of domestic violence, according to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office.
The penal code section cited in Hungerford’s arrest is “corporal punishment to spouse.”
There was a call of a “physical altercation between he and a female subject,” according to Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Samantha Karges, who said deputies went out to Hungerford’s Samoa residence for the call.
After posting $50,000 bail Friday morning, he was released from Humboldt County jail.
An arraignment is set for Feb. 22.
Thursday night’s arrest was his second in recent weeks. On Dec. 24, Hungerford was booked into the county jail after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Manila on state Route 255.
Following the Christmas Eve arrest, Hungerford was released from his position as head men’s basketball coach at College of the Redwoods.
Hungerford served as the College of the Redwoods men’s basketball coach since 2017 and had also served as an assistant coach at Humboldt State University.
