A Danielsville woman was arrested recently after officer Larry MacKay was dispatched to James Spring Road regarding a domestic situation involving a machete.
The woman was charged with aggravated assault and criminal trespass.
When MacKay arrived at the scene, he encountered a man standing in the front yard, holding a machete. MacKay took it from him and asked him what had happened.
He said the woman had “gone nuts” and had come at him with the machete.
He said that he had been cut on the elbow and showed him a cut on the left side of his chest. He declined EMS. MacKay asked him where the offender was and he said she was in the back bedroom.
MacKay found the woman sitting on the floor smoking a cigarette. She said, “good, you’re the police and he can’t hit me.” MacKay asked her to put her cigarette out and stand up. When she stood up, the man was standing in the living room and they started to argue.
MacKay told the man to sit down and be quiet. He complied and MacKay took the woman outside and asked her what happened. She said that the man wanted sex and then he hit her in the head. She had a small bump above her right eye. MacKay placed her in the back seat of his patrol car and went back inside the house. The man denied hitting her and said they had both been drinking and she went into the bathroom and hit her head.
He said he had moved the woman to his home to get her out of the “drug scene” in Atlanta where she previously resided. He said that he and the woman had some drinks and that she went off. He said that she tore up his kitchen, threw the chairs and some other items and then picked up the machete and came at him. He said he got the cut to his chest when she threw the machete. He said that at that point he picked up the machete and went outside and called 9-1-1.
In another arrest, two people were taken into custody last week after they caused several disturbances in Diamond Hill Mobile Home Park.
The two were arrested on one count each of disorderly conduct.
Officer Chad Parr went to Diamond Hill Park on May 27 regarding a drunken female who was trying to start fights with others in the trailer park.
The woman was found on the front porch of a trailer next to hers and taken back to her home. She said she would not cause any more problems.
Her boyfriend was also there and Parr noted that they were both extremely intoxicated, but said they would both stay inside for the evening.
Later, Parr was sent back to their trailer because both were reportedly arguing and cursing. They were arrested and taken to jail.
