Man Suspected of Spousal Abuse Caught With Plants Down

Paul Reasbeck, 43, was being investigated for alleged spousal abuse and making terrorist threats when sheriff's deputies noticed a marijuana grow operation, officials said.

Sheriff's deputies investigating the report of spousal abuse in unincorporated Temecula found an indoor marijuana growing operation in the house, officials said Saturday.

Paul Anthony Reasbeck, 43, was initially arrested on suspicion of spousal abuse and making terrorist threats but a search warrant served Saturday yielded marijuana plants and packaged product, according to Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Kevin McDonald.

Deputies went to Reasbeck's home about 8:50 p.m. Friday to check out the domestic violence call but while at the home in the 28900 block of Baxter Road, they noticed signs of a marijuana production and sales business, the sergeant said.

Investigators asked for and received a search warrant to go back and check out the place, finding plants in various stages of growth and plenty of packaged marijuana for sale, McDonald said.

Authorities will seek additional charges against Reasbeck in relation to the alleged marijuana operation, the sergeant said.

He was booked on suspicion of false imprisonment and inflicting corporal injury on a spouse -- both felonies -- and making terrorist threats, a misdemeanor.

Reasbeck was released on $50,000 bail and was ordered back to court Sept. 14, sheriff's jail records indicate.

I'm sure the lady who was getting slapped around is glad you got a smile out of it Brenda.

Agree with you Sam, seriously Brenda "Get A Life" Abuse of any Kind IS NOT SOMETHING TO LAUGH OR SMILE ABOUT

Hey, I am not the one who made the headline and obviously I did NOT include the woman or Mrs. in the hehehe, as if!. ***relax*** you two The headline is a +plus+ that they also got him for the PLANTS which is a good thing, geesh. Go ride a bike instead of me, Sam and KJO, get a personality, sense of humor and re-read the headline. Its a great article and a great bust as they not only got him for spousal abuse but all the marijuana. IE, he will go to jail alot longer then if it was only for spousal abuse, good job PD.

KJO & Sam need to go smoke some "plants" and chill the hell out! Keep living life that seriously and you'll be needing blood pressure medication. Relax and smile. Life isn't that bad.
KJO July 22, 2012 at 09:42 PM
Perhaps I will go smoke some plants and ride a bicycle (smile:)- After a great romp with my husband earlier I may need those blood pressure medications....Have a great day..

I agree with Brenda. Relax, KJO & Sam. Everyone is so nervous and defensive these days. I wish they would put sedatives in the water supply. Whatever happened to the time we could go out and enjoy the day with our spouses or the rest of our family without some nervous nut bag tailgating us or cutting us off just because we choose to OBEY THE LAW AND DO STRANGE THINGS LIKE DRIVE THE SPEED LIMIT OR YIELD THE RIGHT OF WAY? Lighten up, relax, take a damn pill or smoke something. Just calm down and enjoy life.

Wow, Michael, you sound totally calm and relaxed, yourself, what with all the SCREAMING about how people drive and whatnot, which has what relevance to this whole conversation and/or story?
KJO July 24, 2012 at 05:21 AM
Well said Michelle :) So, I rode my bike, planted some herbs, enrolled in a "Take It Easy Relax Class", took a pill and enjoyed life today while obeying all Laws. :) BORING

The article is untrue and misleading... Can't wait to hear about the counter suit against the reporter and the newspaper!

This man is a monster. I am here to tell you that what he does to the mother of his child (and thus his child) is not a joke. Dolce, I have no doubt that what you are waiting for will happen, as he pulls this stuff all the time and so far, the courts buy it.
jen howl July 27, 2012 at 06:13 PM
None of this ever would of happen if the courts would have listen to the Mother of his child in the first place. She warned that he was a monster, and letting their son anywhere near him was dangerous. I am happy he was exposed to the horrible person he truly is. Now the child will be safe in the arms of his loving Mother where he belongs. (the lady in the story is not the childs Mother)
