SANTA ANA - A 10-year police officer with the Santa Ana Unified School District is facing charges he beat up his girlfriend during a weekend camping trip at Doheny State Beach with their baby, and then telling the woman not to tell anything to authorities who questioned her about the attack. Anthony Carl Maes, 51, Whittier, is expected to be arraigned Tuesday morning on one misdemeanor count of domestic battery with corporal injury and one misdemeanor count of dissuading a witness from reporting a crime. He faces up to two years in jail if convicted on all charges. Maes and his girlfriend were camping at Doheny State Beach the night of May 10 when the couple got into an argument about 11 p.m. Prosecutors accuse Maes of hitting his girlfriend in the face three or four times, leaving scratches and bruises. Park Rangers who showed up at Maes' motorhome to deal with a loud generator noticed the girlfriend was visibly upset and spoke to her. But, according to prosecutors, Maes told her in Spanish not to tell them anything. The Santa Ana Unified School District Police Department oversees the district's schools and is not affiliated with the Santa Ana Police Department. 714-796-7829 or kedds@ocregister.com
