Dec. 20: Simple battery — A Georgia Avenue woman told police her mother had “bumped” her knee with the front of her vehicle before leaving the home after the two had argued. The daughter said she was smoking outside when her mother approached her about burning a hole in the back seat of the car. The daughter said her mother had called her “a deadbeat” single-mother and then sprayed her in the face with air freshener.
The daughter said she tried to defend herself when her mother jumped in the vehicle to leave, but apparently put the car in drive instead of reverse. The woman’s mother returned to the scene while officers were there. Police reported the mother was shaking with a bundle of hair on her lap and scratches on her arms.
The mother said she was vacuuming the vehicle in the driveway when her daughter asked for a ride. She told her daughter she could not give her a ride that day, and said when she turned away she felt a can of air freshener hit her in the back of the head and her hair yanked from behind. The mother said she tried to push her daughter away, finally managing to get in the car and leave.
