Jackson County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a physical dispute on Mark Dodd Rd. where a man requested a ride to a hospital after receiving injuries in a fight with his girlfriend.

The man said his girlfriend slapped him because he was drinking inside their camper. He said he pushed her away but she then allegedly grabbed and twisted his scrotum and tried to choke him with his shirt. The man said the girlfriend bit him as well and he admitted to punching her to get her away from him.

The girlfriend said the man initiated the physical confrontation while he was intoxicated. She said she pushed him away from her and admitted to grabbing his crotch area because he tried to choke her with his foot.

Due to conflicting stories, no arrest was made. Both had injuries, but the man reportedly had more injuries than the girlfriend.
