A Danielsville man was arrested on family violence charges recently after he allegedly struck his wife in the face.
Christopher Paul Brooks, 33, 490 Hillwood Drive, was booked into the Madison County Jail on one count of battery FVA.
According to the incident report, Sgt. Michael Moore went to the scene after E-911 received a call that a male had hit a female in the face with a ball bat.
When Moore got to the scene, he met a woman in the driveway who told him Brooks had hit his wife and wouldn’t let her leave the house. Moore and another deputy spotted Brooks through a window and ordered him to show his hands.
Moore then went inside and met with the couple in their bedroom. His wife said she was on the phone with a friend and he took the phone from her, which caused the mark. She said he didn’t hit her anywhere else and that it was her that had the ball bat because she didn’t know what he was going to do. Brooks said they were arguing about his wife not being able to contact him by phone that day.
