Domestic dispute
July 5, 2007
Country Lane, Ludowici

Deputies responded to a domestic dispute. The husband claimed he and his wife had an argument the previous night and he stayed over at a neighbor’s house with his children for the evening. He reported his wife called him and told him to return home and pick up clothes for the children. When he did, he noticed the extra keyless remote for his car on the bed and tried to take it off his wife’s keychain. But the woman tried to grab it out of his hands and caused the remote to break off the keychain. The complainant said the woman then hit him once in the face and a few times in the chest. The woman told deputies she only hit him on the shoulder. He was advised not to go back to the residence without a deputy present.
