A Comer teen was arrested last week following a domestic dispute on Norwood Road.

Joseph Michael Abbs, 19, was charged with three counts of aggravated assault and one count of simple battery family violence.

On Feb. 5, Cpl. Zach Brooks was dispatched to Norwood Road to meet with a complainant about a domestic dispute involving a firearm. The complainant was standing in the front yard along with three other people. She told Brooks that she and one of the women standing with her have children by the same father and that this woman lives two houses down with her daughter and her new boyfriend (Abbs). She said she went over to the woman’s house that evening to check on her and see how she was doing and Abbs answered the door, yelling at her to leave the property.

She said she could see the woman inside the home crying so she asked Abbs what was wrong with her and he allegedly became very angry. The woman tried to get between her and Abbs and calm him down but he pushed her back inside the home and grabbed a rifle. The complainant said by that time her sister had gotten out of the car and walked up the house to see if she could help. Abbs allegedly pointed the gun at both women and ordered them to leave.

Both the women said that they wanted to press charges, but the girlfriend of Abbs said she did not. She was informed that since she and Abbs live in the same home, charges would be filed on her behalf by the state.

Deputy Joshua Rice went to the home where the altercation occurred and he found Abbs sitting in the living room with the baby. Brooks put the girlfriend in his patrol car and also went back to the home. Abbs told them he told them all to leave because he did not want them there. He was told to put the baby down and he was then handcuffed.

The rifle was found and seized as evidence.

In another arrest, Danny Ray Barnett, Jr., 37, of Danielsville, was charged with possession of a Schedule I or II drugs (two counts) possession of drug-related objects.

Deputy Gary Floyd was dispatched to Young Harris Road where he met with a woman who said she found a baggie with white residue in the fold out bed of her son (Barnett) and that other items were found on the porch.

Barnett was found on the bed in the living room and admitted the methamphetamine was his.

A brownish waxy substance located in a hollowed out red rubber ball tested positive for THC. A red straw located in Barnett’s pocket tested positive for methamphetamine, as did the baggie found in the fold-out bed.
