A Hull man was arrested recently for family violence against his mother.
Julio Cesar Flores, 27, 9574 Hwy. 72 West, Lot 44, was charged with one count of battery under the Family Violence Act.
According to the incident report, deputies first made contact with Flores, who said his brother beat him up. Flores had a swollen eye, a busted lip and a small laceration on his cheek. When they went to interview the brother, they found Flores’ mother, who told them that she and Flores had gotten into an argument while he was intoxicated and that he had grabbed her by the wrists and threw her on the floor. The woman had visible marks on her left wrist, which had been bleeding, according to the report, along with carpet burns. When the brother came to get her, Flores reportedly became combative again and the brother defended himself and his mother.
In another arrest, a Colbert woman was charged with DUI after her car was found overturned on Colbert Smithonia Road.
Joanne Rose Snyder, 55, 1699 Hardman Morris Road, was charged with DUI/alcohol and weaving over the roadway.
According to the incident report, Deputy Michael Moore detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from her. She told the deputy that she had had two glasses of wine at dinner and was traveling on Colbert Smithonia Road when she lost control on a curve and ran off the road into an embankment, which caused her car to overturn.
