Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies recently responded to a residence on Merigold Way where a woman said her roommate instigated a dispute with her and her son and attempted to fight the son.

Richard Vaughn Vennie, 32, 342 Merigold Way, Pendergrass, was found blocks away and was arrested, charged with simple assault.

The woman said Vennie frequently violates house rules by drinking. On the incident date, she said Vennie got in her son’s face when they came inside and then went after her before she ran into her bedroom.

Vennie denied the incident but due to how scared the woman and son seemed and Vinnie’s intoxication, the deputy arrested him.
