In an incident report received by the Midway Police Department through a FOIA request, Antoine McLendon who is charged with murder for the death of Albert “Spud” Dock, allegedly choked his ex-girlfriend until she was unconscious.

According to the incident report, on Nov. 9, 2018, Midway Police responded to a domestic violence incident in progress. When police arrived, they observed a male figure jumping over a fence of the backyard. McLendon’s ex-girlfriend told police she was outside in her backyard speaking with her ex-husband when she saw McLendon jumping over her fence.

She said McLendon had previously approached her in an aggressive manner and the two began arguing, according to the MPD report. McLendon’s ex-girlfriend told police that McLendon began verbally threatening her ex-husband before starting to choke her until she was unconscious.

She then stated when she gained consciousness, McLendon was standing over her when he took her cell phone and threw it across the yard. She was able to retrieve her phone and call 911. She said that when the police arrived she believed McLendon saw the police and ran and jumped the fence. McLendon was unable to be found in the area.

According to the report, the responding officer called McLendon’s staff sergeant and behavior health specialist to advise them of the incident. The report also indicates that the alcohol was involved in this incident.

McLendon is being held at the Liberty County Jail without a bond. He is charged with DUI, murder and homicide in the 1st degree amongst other chargers from the Jan. 26 fatal accident that left one local high school student dead and injured two other teens.
