Four people were arrested for affray (fighting) last week after deputies were summoned to Diamond Hill Grocery and trailer park.
Arrested were: Pamela Cromer, 19, 5657 Hwy. 29 South, Lot 8, Hull; Sherrie Cromer, 39, 5657 Hwy. 29 South, Lot 5, Hull; Amanda Crowe, 22, 426 Veterans Drive, Danielsville; and Gregory M. Mulligan, 17, 5657 Hwy. 29 South, Lot 8, Hull.
According to the incident report, deputy Gary Floyd and Lt. Burl Johnson responded to a 2 a.m. call to the grocery store where a crowd of people met them. The crowd, which was still arguing upon their arrival, was separated immediately. Witnesses at the store stated that Mulligan had punched a female, Crowe, in the mouth. Deputy Floyd observed a faint mark near Crowe’s left eye. According to witness statements, the incident began when a group of men, along with Mulligan and an unidentified female, were standing next to the store when a group of females exited the store and words were exchanged between the two groups.
At one point witnesses reportedly stated that the females were pulling up their shirts, showing their breasts and shouting obscenities at the other group. At some time during this exchange, they allegedly began to hit and punch each other, carrying the fight to the trailer park behind the store. Two men, Norman Cromer and Gregory W. Mulligan (the father of Greg Mulligan), exited their homes to stop the fight and were reportedly caught up in the melee. Floyd noted that some of Mr. Cromer’s teeth were knocked out and the elder Mulligan suffered a cut to his left ear. Both men refused medical treatment, according to the report. Four of the assailants were identified and placed into custody and charged with affray.
