Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On 08/09/2022 at 8:15 PM, I responded to [REDACTED BY AGENCY] The Commons Subdivision in reference to a domestic dispute. Prior to arriving on scene Communications advised responding officers the caller reported the male offender, Charles Lewis was on scene arguing with the mother, [VICTIM #1]. Further information from Communications was that Charles Lewis was severely intoxicated, put a hole in the wall and pulled the alarm system from the wall.

Upon arrival I first made contact with [WITNESS #1] who resides at [REDACTED BY AGENCY]. [WITNESS #1] met officers at the front door and said her brother, Charles Lewis was intoxicated and arguing with her mother, [VICTIM #1]. She said Charles had put a hole in the wall and pulled the alarm system keypad from the wall.

At the time [WITNESS #1] believed that Charles was upstairs in his bedroom and her mother was in her bedroom. I entered the residence with [WITNESS #1] and made contact with [VICTIM #1] in the dining room. [VICTIM #1] did not know where Charles was and thought he had left the residence. Contact was made with Charles and he walked down stairs to speak with officer’s. I asked [VICTIM #1] and [WITNESS #1] to wait in the kitchen area while I spoke to Charles about the incident.

Charles was extremely intoxicated as I could smell an alcohol beverage on his person. I asked Charles about the incident involving his mother and he did not say anything. I asked Charles was there an altercation with his mother and he would not answer any questions related to this incident. Officers stood by with Charles while I spoke to [WITNESS #1] and [VICTIM #1].

[WITNESS #1] reports she witnessed Charles pull the alarm key pad from the wall and put his fist through the sheet rock directly below the key pad. [WITNESS #1] showed me a picture of the damage from her cell phone. I asked what Charles was mad about and she didn’t know. I was told he returned home [REDACTED BY AGENCY] on 07/14/22 and has been drinking since he returned. [VICTIM #1] did not witness Charles damage the alarm key pad. I also asked [VICTIM #1] what Charles was mad about and she didn’t know other than him just being intoxicated. [VICTIM #1] did advise that she is scared of Charles when he drinks. I explained to [VICTIM #1] that Charles was going to be arrested for Criminal Trespass.

Based on the physical and testimonial evidence it was determined Charles was the pre dominant aggressor. He was advised that he was under arrest for Criminal Trespass-FVA and instructed to stand up. I handcuffed Charles behind his back and he was searched incident to arrest. He was then escorted to my patrol vehicle, placed in the back seat and seat belted in. Charles asked me if he could be 1013. I asked him if he was having thoughts of harming himself and he said he wanted to kill himself.

Officer Lane and Officer Walker provided the victim, [VICTIM #1] with my business card along with a Glynn County Police Department victim pamphlet. Officer Lane obtained body camera footage of the damaged security key pad and the hole in the sheet rock.

I transported Charles to Southeast Georgia Regional Medical Center -Brunswick Campus for a jail clearance and also a mental evaluation due to the statements he made to me. At the hospital Charles spoke to the ER doctor and I was informed by the doctor he would not be kept for a 1013. Charles was cleared for jail and I then transported him to the Glynn County Detention Center.

At the jail he was processed and released to the jail staff. I have completed a warrant for Criminal Trespass – FVA for the damages caused by Charles Lewis during this incident.
