A Hull man was arrested recently after deputies were called about a domestic dispute. Eric Hamilton Gillespie, 24, 149 Scogin Road, was charged with battery, suspended registration, marijuana possession less than an ounce, removing or affixing license plate with intent to conceal or misrepresent and weaving over roadway.

A woman at her mother’s home on Hill Street in Comer told deputies that Gillespie had struck her with his closed fist while they were arguing over his shirt not being dry. The officer noted that she had a bruise under her left eye and on the right side of her mouth. The incident had happened at their residence on Spratlin Mill Road, according to the report and Gillespie had later taken her to her mother’s home.

While officers were there, Gillespie called and said he had wrecked his car on a dirt road near the Hill Street residence. The officer found him putting air in a tire and noted where he had run off the road and struck an embankment. Gillespie was placed in handcuffs while his car was searched. A handgun and marijuana were found in the vehicle. Gillespie was advised of his charges and placed under arrest.
