A Judiciary of Guam marshal spent a night behind bars, charged with DWI after he fled the scene of a crash and then assaulted a police officer.

An investigation into a hit-and-run involving mowed over mailboxes in Santa Rita led police officers to the home of Anthony Chiguina Aguon Jr., a Judiciary of Guam Court Marshal.

JOG Spokeswoman Tina Blaz stated that the Judiciary is aware of the magistrate complaint filed against Marshal Aguon and he is at the Judiciary working in a limited capacity. But at this time, there is no internal investigation being conducted.

A Santa Rita resident reported the crash shortly after midnight on August 9th, after being awakened by the sound of a loud bang. The resident discovered that his mailbox and the mailboxes of his neighbors were knocked down, along with parts from a white vehicle possibly a Toyota.

Police made a check of the area finding a White Toyota Tacoma with damages consistent with the evidence discovered at the scene, the vehicle was confirmed to belong to Aguon. A woman told police that he had come home with the damaged vehicle after he left to visit his parents in Umatac.

When police arrested him for the incident, Aguon made threatening statements towards the officer including “I can choke you out and throw you in a triangle like nothing, bro. You guys watch.”

The complaint indicates that Aguon refused to comply with officers instructions and when Aguon was being taken out to the patrol car for processing he kicked the door of the vehicle exiting in a ‘bladed stance” A struggle ensued as police say Aguon used his legs to get leverage to flip over and harm the arresting officer. The arresting officer was kicked in the stomach during the altercation.

Aguon is now facing criminal felony charges of assault on a peace officer, driving while impaired and leaving the scene with property damage.

He was released on his personal recognizance.
