A 33-year-old Greenville man is in a coma following a Sept. 8 incident that is still under investigation.

Jarold Hovland is listed in critical condition at Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno.

According to Plumas County Sheriff’s Investigator Steve Peay and District Attorney David Hollister, the events that led to Hovland’s injuries are still under investigation. There have been no arrests made.

“From what we can tell at this point, there was a party going on and a fight broke out,” Peay said.

Peay said three people who were possibly involved in the fight have been interviewed.

According to the information from the sheriff’s office, Hovland was found “covered in blood” at 10:51 p.m. Sept. 8.

The incident happened in a wooded area about 60 yards behind the residence of 125 Bidwell St., No. 1, in Greenville.

Hovland was airlifted to Renown, where he remains.

Peay said anyone with information is encouraged to call the sheriff’s investigation unit at 283-6363.

I have no faith in our judicial system. Jarold is my friend and deserves justice. But alas this is Plumas County and the cops in Greenville could care less. These 3 scum bags need to be prosecuted for piece of mind in our community and to rebuild trust with law enforcement.
To get arrested here you need to commit a real crime. You know what I mean. Drink four beers and drive in a car with the license plate light out.
Being investigated!!!!..Ya..Right!!...SOMEONE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ARRESTED imediately just because Jarold was beaten so badly!!!I am very disappointed ...but am not suprised of the way this incident is being handled!! At least pray for him!..He certainly deserves our prayers!! God be with U Jarold!!
How is it that three men were involved in a fight against one man, with Jarold barely holding onto life.. and NO arrests were made!?
