Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies recently responded to a residence on Summit Chase Dr. where a couple argued to the point of physical confrontation.

The man said he and the woman were yelling at each other and she slapped him in the face and pushed him. The man said he pushed her away from him and she hit her head on a cabinet.

The woman said he was getting into her face and spitting on her so she pushed him away from her and he pushed her back.

No arrest was made and the couple agreed to sleep on opposite ends of the residence.


A couple on Adella Ln. contacted the JCSO after searching their 14-year-old daughter’s phone and finding a string of messages between her and a man claiming to be 74 years old.

The couple said this has been a problem with the teen in the past and they recently confiscated her laptop for engaging in online conversations with strangers. The teen reportedly didn’t seem to understand the severity of the situation and claimed the man seemed bored and genuinely wanted to be her friend. She said the conversation started when an advertisement popped up on her phone asking if she wanted to talk. She admitted to answering yes and then her messaging application opened and the conversation began with the contact listed as “IDK.”
