Simple battery
July 14, 2007
Briskhaven Court

An officer made contact with the complainant at the Hinesville Police Department in reference to simple battery. The complainant stated her husband came home from the club the next morning and they began to argue about him being out all night. As she questioned him, he started cursing her then swung and punched her in the face. She stated he forced her up against the headboard of their bed and choked her. The complainant is also several months pregnant. Her military chain of command instructed her not return to the residence and to seek counseling from the Domestic Family Violence Center on Fort Stewart. The officer did not see any visible injuries on the complainant. The complainant was advised on warrant procedures, temporary protective orders and the Tri County Shelter.

W. Hendry Street

An officer was dispatched to West Hendry Street for a disturbance. Upon arrival, the officer spoke with the complainant. He said a white male who worked at the gas station next door had threatened his life. He said the man was harassing the clerk and, when he said something about it, the male told him he would end his life. Two women confirmed the threats. They said the man was yelling at them, too. The officer went next door to the gas station and made contact with the suspect. He said he did not make any threats and had just gone into the store for some cat food. He claimed the complainant started the argument.

Vehicle damage
July 15, 2007
W. General Screven Way

An officer was dispatched to West Gen. Screven Way in reference to vehicle damage. Upon arrival, the officer made contact with the complainant who told the officer his vehicle’s fender was damaged by a shopping cart in the Food Lion parking lot. There was a shopping cart in the immediate area. The officer attempted to match up the shopping cart with the damage to the vehicle. The damage was not concurrent with the height of a shopping cart. The complainant then told the officer it was a car door that did the damage. The officer noticed a “ding” in the driver-side, rear door but the complainant said, “the ding was there before.” The complainant told the officer a door did the damage to the rear fender of his vehicle. The damage done to the fender appeared to have come from the vehicle coming into contact with a stationary object.
