Two people arrested in Paso Robles after alleged domestic violence incident

Two people are arrested after an alleged domestic violence incident. The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's department says the incident happened Sunday morning on the 3000-block of Nacimiento Lake Drive in Paso Robles. Authorities say they responded to a report of a physical fight and firearm discharge.

In this case, a woman is accused of battering her fiance. Machel Schoepf, 38, of Paso Robles, was taken into custody. Sheriff's deputies say she brandished a loaded firearm and discharged a round into the ground during an argument in front of their home. The alleged victim is 39-year-old Lloyd Cockayne of Paso Robles. He sustained minor injuries because of the incident. Schoepf was booked into the San Luis Obispo County jail for inflicting corporal injury on a cohabitant and grossly negligent discharge of a firearm, both felonies, and for misdemeanor brandishing of a firearm. She is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

The story gets even more interesting. Further investigation revealed the presence of an additional firearm and a police style baton illegally possessed by Cockayne, a felon on supervised state parole. He was taken into custody for being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a restricted dangerous weapon which are both felonies. Cockayne was booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail and is currently being held in lieu of $20,000 bail.
