[VICTIM #1] stated that Isaac began to shout threats towards her and the other family members on the front porch. [VICTIM #1] stated that whenever she cannot give Isaac money for alcohol or other things, that he becomes aggressive and threatening. [VICTIM #1] then stated that she walked to the front of her yard, just before the roadway and told Isaac to stay away from her property, because she was tired of him threatening her and disturbing the peace.
[VICTIM #1] stated that her and Isaac then began to argue, and Isaac began to threaten her with violence and was taunting her with the machete. [VICTIM #1] stated that Isaac stated that he would kill her. [VICTIM #1] then stated that eventually, the two met on the roadway in front of 109 Simmons Mcintyre. [VICTIM #1] stated that Isaac then swung the machete at her, but missed. [VICTIM #1] stated that when the Isaac missed with the machete, she lunged at him to protect herself. [VICTIM #1] stated that her and Isaac then went to the ground and started rolling around.
[VICTIM #1] stated that during the fight, Isaac told her he was going to “fu*k her up” and “kill her”. [VICTIM #1] stated that when she was able to get up and away from Isaac, he ran away and she believed that he ran down the road to hide the machete. Dep. Millender observed [VICTIM #1]’s right hand swollen with visible blood on her knuckles. Dep. Millender also observed [VICTIM #1]’s right knee swollen, and dirt all over her body. [VICTIM #1] refused treatment from EMS.
Dep. Millender then made contact with [REDACTED], [VICTIM #1]’s husband. [REDACTED] stated that Isaac is constantly showing up at their home of [100 BLOCK] Simmons Mcintyre and asking for money amongst other things. [REDACTED] stated that Isaac is always doing drugs and drinking alcohol, and that when he can’t get what he wants from them, he threatens the whole family and tries to extort them by threat of physical violence. [REDACTED] stated that he heard Isaac outside yelling and threatening [VICTIM #1]. [REDACTED] stated that he did not witness the altercation.
Dep. Millender made contact with [WITNESS #1], the step son of [VICTIM #1], who stated that he did witness Isaac approach the front yard waving a machete around. [WITNESS #1] stated that while Isaac was waving the machete, he was also shouting at [VICTIM #1], attempting to provoke a physical altercation.
[WITNESS #1] stated that he saw Isaac and [VICTIM #1] on the road yelling, when Isaac swung a machete at [VICTIM #1]. [WITNESS #1] stated that Isaac and [VICTIM #1] then tied up onto the ground fighting. [WITNESS #1] also stated that when Isaac and [VICTIM #1] separated, Isaac walked down the road towards another property, and when he returned, he was not in possession of the machete.
Dep. Millender also made contact with [WITNESS #2], [VICTIM #1] and Isaac’s brother. [WITNESS #2] stated that he also observed Isaac approach the property holding and waving a machete. [WITNESS #2] stated that he witnessed [VICTIM #1] tell Isaac to leave multiple times, but Isaac continued to threaten [VICTIM #1].
[WITNESS #2] stated that anytime Isaac wants money, he goes to [VICTIM #1]’s house and threatens whoever is there for what he wants. [WITNESS #2] did state that Isaac swung a machete at [VICTIM #1], but he continued to give very vague statements to Dep. Millender and appeared uninterested in cooperating with the investigation.
Dep. Millender then approached Isaac once again to ask where the machete was. Isaac denied ever having a machete, and stated that [VICTIM #1] was the one that attacked him first. Isaac answered Dep. Millender’s questions very erratically and made multiple incoherent statements. At one point, Dep. Millender told Isaac to stand in front of another Deputies patrol vehicle, to which he responded by poking his chest out and slowly walking towards Dep. Millender, seemingly attempting to intimidate Dep. Millender.
As other Deputies arrived on scene to search the area, the machete was eventually found two properties east of [100 BLOCK] Simmons Mcintyre, propped up under a tree. Upon finding the machete, Isaac stated to Dep. Millender that he did have the machete, but he did not approach [VICTIM #1] with it. Dep. Millender asked [VICTIM #1] to describe the machete before showing it to her, and she described the machete found as a match of the one Isaac swung at her.
It should be noted that before this incident was dispatched, Decatur/Grady 911 advised units of an anonymous report of a subject walking south bound on US HWY 27S, near Mile Marker One. Deputies were advised that the subject appeared to be waving a machete or a large knife around while walking. Deputies were unable to located the subject.
Dep. Millender took photo’s of [VICTIM #1]’s injured right hand and right knee, and also Isaac’s injured left hand, along with the machete and the location in which the machete was found. Dep. Millender placed Isaac under arrest, due to witness statements and evidence found pointing towards Isaac as being the predominant aggressor. Dep. Millender handcuffed Isaac, placing his hands behind his back, double locking and then checking for fit.
Dep. Millender then searched Isaac and found a cellphone, two lighters, a speaker box and some spare change. Isaac was then placed into the rear passenger seat of Dep. Millender’s patrol vehicle. Dep. Millender then turned on the rear seat AXON Camera to record. After Isaac was taken into custody, he started to complain of neck pain, and stated that he had a bullet in his back. Dep. Millender requested EMS to the scene to check his condition.
When EMS arrived, Dep. Millender opened his back door to let EMS check Isaac, but found him slumped over and unresponsive. Dep. Millender then lifted Isaac up and performed a sternum rub, Isaac responded and looked at Dep. Millender. EMS cleared Isaac, but he still wanted to go to the Hospital. Isaac was transported to BMH by Deputy David Green.
Isaac’s property will be turned over to Jail personnel when he is booked. Photo’s and Video recording of the incident will be uploaded to AXON Evidence with the case number attached.
