COPS CORNER 11.25.15

Which of two tales in a domestic dispute was true?
by: Zak Kerr Staff Writer/Reporter


NOV. 8

15000 block of West Colonial Drive. Domestic dispute. An officer apprehended a walking suspect matching a description from a domestic dispute. The suspect said he had argued with his wife. He said his wife had plopped on the bed to ask for money while he slept, which he gave after she tugged and pushed him. She bought an alcohol energy drink and then returned with belligerent behavior, slashing his bicycle tires so he could not leave, he said. She told him she would call the police if he left, he said. She told officers he had hit her in the head with a chair and punched her in the left side of the face. She said he had hit her in the left leg and side with a stool and then threw it at her, also trying to hit her with a faucet broken off the kitchen sink. He threw the bike at her while she huddled in fear, calling her “fat (expletive, expletive)” and smacking her face, she said. Officers found no evidence of fresh injuries on either person, and she said more than once, “This time I’m going to tell you the truth.” No arrests or charges were filed, so the husband took his belongings and then left via a ride from his wife’s sister.
