Domestic situation calls from Omar and Kistler top the list of weekend arrests. Other arrests include motor vehicle violations and shoplifting.
• Officers investigated an incident in the community of Cow Creek involving Melissa and Tracy Adams. The victim, Melissa Adams, told officers she and Tracy Adams had an altercation during which he hit her several times. The victim said Mr. Adams had been drinking all night and when she confronted him about it, he became belligerent and started to physically harm her. The officers noted the victim’s face was swollen and bruised from the altercation. When officers made contact with Mr. Adams, he refused to cooperate with their verbal commands. They were, however, able to detain Mr. Adams without further incident. Tracy Rondale Adams, 46, was arrested and charged with domestic assault, domestic battery and two counts of obstructing. His bond was set at $2,500.
• When the officer responded to the domestic situation at Kistler, he was told by the victim, Delores Butcher, that the defendant, Joshua Ellis, had been arguing with her all evening. She told the officer that he cussed at her and then he shocked her. The officer observed several red marks on the victim’s neck. Joshua Ellis, 25, was arrested and charged with domestic battery and domestic assault.
