A man and woman were arrested after an altercation at a Colbert Danielsville Road residence Oct. 4.
Brooke Alexandria Shaw, 48, Danielsville, and James Scott Strickland, 57, Danielsville, were charged with battery.
Arresting officer Tracy Rucker reported that Strickland said Shaw “went crazy and began to hit him with his walking stick and his grandmother’s china.” Strickland’s left thumb was cut and bleeding.
Rucker found Shaw on the bedroom floor crying. She said the previous night Strickland burst into her bedroom and jumped on her back. She said he grabbed her by the throat. Shaw said he held her hostage by taking her cell phone and house phone.
Rucker said after speaking with both parties, it was evident they both put hands on each other that caused visible marks. They were both cuffed and transported to the Madison County Jail.
In another incident, Austin Richard Jones, 24, Danielsville, was charged with simple battery — family violence after allegedly hitting his roommate several times with a broom in the front of his right leg.
