Ripon man accused to trying to kill family

RIPON, CA - A 4-year-old child escaped serious injury or worse when his father intentionally slammed his Honda into a utility pole Monday, according to Ripon police.

The child, and his mother who was also in the car, had minor injuries.

The father, 24-year-old David Allen Goulet, was arrested for attempted vehicular manslaughter, kidnapping, false imprisonment, and child cruelty charges, said police 1st Sgt. Steve Merchant.

The crash was preceded by an argument between Goulet and the woman on the 500 block of N. Stockton Avenue with the man grabbing the child and the child's mother jumping in the Honda as Goulet started driving away, Merchant said.
