Lacey Fowler resists arrest, swings at a police officer

Lacey FowlerBy KAREN VELIE

A former Cuesta College human resources analyst who was wanted on several failure to appear arrest warrants — in addition to charges of burglary and forgery — is facing an additional charge after she attempted to punch a Paso Robles Police officer on Monday afternoon.

Around 1 p.m., Paso Robles Police officers responding to a tip found Lacey Fowler, 29, on the 100 block of Capital Hill Drive. Lacey then fled and a short chase ensued.

After officers caught up with the former analyst, Fowler took a swing at an officer. Fowler missed and neither the officer nor Fowler were injured during the arrest, Sgt. Stephen Lampe said.

“We responded to the area where she was spotted and she ran from police,” Lampe said. “She tried to strike an officer.”

Fowler is being held in the San Luis Obispo County Jail in lieu of $727,000 bail.

In less than two months, Fowler has been arrested four times. She is facing six felony charges including burglary, forgery, possession of methamphetamine and cocaine packaged for sale and unlawfully accessing data. Fowler is also charged with multiple misdemeanors including battery on a spouse, violating a restraining order and resisting arrest.

Fowler’s previous bail of $115,000 is forfeited, according to court records.

Law enforcement began focusing on Fowler in late May after she allegedly breached the Cuesta College data system remotely and then emailed employee names, home addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and Social Security numbers to her private email account. When officers searched her home, they discovered more than four pounds of methamphetamine and heroin.

On July 6, Lacey Fowler failed to show for a hearing on the charges of spousal abuse, failure to comply to a restraining order and unlawfully accessing data. The court issued an arrest warrant and set her bail at $227,000.

On July 7, Lacey Fowler allegedly burglarized a commercial vehicle and passed a forged check at the Paso Robles Walmart which led to the increase bail of $727,000.

This girls behavior is so bizarre. It must be the meth. Lets face it, nothing she does makes any sense. She decided to go on the lamb but she stayed in town where she would surely be caught and she committed more crimes in the process! Why did she rum in the first place and possibly cost someone who cares about her $115K in lost bail? I think since she has been found, the bail will now probably be returned and it might be the person who posted it is the one who managed to track her down and turn her in.

It must be the meth, could she really be this crazy and have managed to keep her job at Cuesta for the last few years? Ooops, I can imagine the answers to that question, but seriously?


This is so unbelievably funny that we will have to make a movie out of it. We could call it the Fugitive trilogy. It has the master mind criminal housewife being chased by the Keystone cops only to do serious time. Good thing she has been brought to justice and doesn’t need to worry about the money because she could easily recoup the $700,000 bail money. Could give the money back to Cuesta and they revoke this Measure L tax easily.

What I don’t understand is the spousal abuse charge. Why didn’t Lacy’s husband just follow the biblical doctrine as shown below, and there would have been no need for any confrontation between him and his wife?

“It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.” (Proverbs 21:9)

“It is better to live alone in the desert than with a crabby, complaining wife.” (Proverbs 21:19)

“A quarrelsome wife is as annoying as constant dripping on a rainy day. Stopping her complaints is like trying to stop the wind or trying to hold something with greased hands.” (Proverbs 27:15-16)

This story shows us once again that if we live by bible principles, it would eliminate so much of the hardships of marriage.



Amen. We are Free at last of asking WHY do people do really stupid things?

LOL!…that explains a lot of your comments on this board.


Tack on a few more felonies, Lacey and add a few years to your time.


Toss this government criminal in jail and throw the key away.


Meth does bad things to people. This is a good example.


OK District Attorney Dan Dow, let’s not have a plea deal here….she deserves a lot of

time in the iron bar motel. Shame on Cuesta for even hiring this criminal in the first

place….the person who checked on her background should be fired.

FYI, Dow had nothing to do with the Jarmin plea deal. Do the research and know the truth.


But Dan Dow does have the responsibility right now as to if she gets a plea deal, and it should be “NO”, start sending criminals a message and make it the right message.

Dan Dow sent out a Lettie to the victims , the letter being dated 7/10. Maybe an ambitious reporter will get their hands on a copy and clue us in.


Please Dan you have to get involved in this one! There are criminals out there and you really don’t have to look too hard. They are right there at your local community college!


Plea bargains are good. With a plea bargain you give up your right to a jury trial (saving tax payer dollars) and your right to appeal. So its a done deal. Whatever the plea deal is, Im guessing in this case it will involve serving time she has a couple counts of violence toward others, and one of those is a cop.


I feel for who ever posted bail that she ran on. But how do you get arrested 4 times and let out on bail? I follow laws so I don’t know, buy this seems so wrong.

And then as crowded as the jail are, they will let her out again probably. We created the revolving door in California. The 3 strikes deal was a bad deal and we are now paying for it.

Kevin Rice

Sure, let ’em all out for a 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th strike. Then let ’em out again. Three felonies is enough to convince me where one should reside.


IDK Kevin…I like three strikes for violent and/or sexual crimes. But, to put away people for a long time that are dealing with substance abuse is somewhat counterproductive.


Still wondering how Tom Yanaga got bail after being charged with murder.

He and Lacey Fowler shoud have stayed behind bars just like Leeny Jones.


The concept is “innocent until proven guilty”. She hasn’t been convicted of anything and she obviously has strong ties to the community and there is little chance that she could go far. On the other, a couple arrests while under the influence and being in a home with pounds of heroin should disqualify someone from be considered for bail.


There is something super Thelma & Louise about this crazy bitch. It’s kindof entertaining to watch.


If she’s is Thelma, where is Louise?

Please don’t use the term “b#tch” to describe anyone


Good, now let’s get on with prosecuting this bitch!!!


Yahoo. Let us know when and we can have movie sized popcorn and soda.
