Simple battery
S. Main Street, Sept. 22

An officer was dispatched to E.G. Miles Parkway in reference to a simply battery.
When the officer arrived, he spoke with the complainant who said she had been in an argument with her husband and he punched her in the side of the head. When the officer observed her head, he noticed a large lump where she said she had been hit. The officer asked her where her husband was and she said he was at their residence, along with her two children. The officer asked her if he had been drinking and she said they both had. She wanted an escort to her home so she could get her children and return to the hospital. She also wanted to press charges against her husband for hitting her. Two officers took the complainant home from the emergency room, and spoke with the offender. The woman’s husband said there had been an argument, he lost his temper and punched the complainant in the head. The officer asked him if she had struck him and he said no.
A witness told the officers the complainant started the argument and, as it went on, the husband dropped a laundry basket on her head. She then attempted to kick him but did not make contact. The verbal argument then went on for a few more minutes and the offender grabbed the complainant by the hair and hit her in the head two times with his right hand. One of the officers transported the complainant and her children back to the emergency room and the other officer placed the husband under arrest for simple battery. He was transported to the police station and then the county jail. During transport, the husband told an officer his wife had kicked him when she thought he was throwing a laundry basket at her.

The two complainants provided the officer with 16 copies of the email messages they received. The messages were dated from Sept. 21-23. Several of the messages included threats against the complainants in the statements of “I will kill you myself” or “I might have someone else kill you.” There were also references to doing damage to the complainants’ residence.
