A Colbert man was arrested on family violence charges recently following a domestic dispute on Jack Sharp Road.
Damato Jamentraviaus McCann, 24, was charged with one count of battery/simple battery FVA.
On Jan. 10, deputy Brandon Moss was dispatched to Jack Sharp Road regarding a 9-1-1 call about a woman who said she had been hit in the head and was bleeding. Dispatch also advised Moss that the perpetrator had run into the woods following the assault.
On scene, the woman told Moss that she and her husband got into an argument and that he threw a phone at her, striking her in the head. He then ran out the back door into the woods.
McCann was unable to be located at the time of the report, but his wife called back later and said he was in the woods behind the house. Moss told him to come out of the woods and he complied.
Other incidents on file at the sheriff’s office recently included:
•A woman on Pope Miller Road said her brother’s girlfriend keeps calling and threatening her. She said the caller stated that if she comes back over to her house she is going to “beat her @$$ and then send her mother over to beat her @$$ again.”
•Possible arson was reported on Forest Lane. A man who lives in a camper behind the house said he was sitting in his camper watching TV when he saw bright lights out in the yard and smelled smoke. He walked around the house and found the front of the house on fire. He then took a stick and put it out and called to 9-1-1. A yellow and black hand sprayer tank was found at the site of the fire containing fuel and a Bic lighter was on the ground nearby. Speaking with the owner of the residence, officer James Justice was told that approximately one week ago he found the front residence along the roofline in the same area on fire. He said the man in the camper told him (homeowner) that he had a fire in the basement in a 55-gallon drum and that the heat from that fire melted the vinyl soffit on the house. He said the man told him he’d “fix it.” The case is still under investigation.
