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 6-13-2022 I, Deputy Fleming responded to the area of Old CCC Camp Rd and Holy Creek Cool Springs Rd in reference to a physical domestic between a male and female. While en route to the area Murray County 911 advised that the male has left walking on foot back towards the “swim hole” wearing a black shirt that said engineered floors on it and black shorts.

I then made contact with the victims [VICTIM #1] and [VICTIM #2] who were standing beside a red Volkswagen Beetle on the side of Old CCC Camp Rd just south of Holy Creek Cool Springs Rd. When I exited my patrol vehicle I could visibly see blood running down the left side of [VICTIM #2]’s face. I asked Mr. [VICTIM #2] if he would like EMS to check him out and he advised no he did not, but due to the amount of blood running down his face I had EMS en route anyway’s to medically clear him.

While speaking with both [VICTIM #2] and [VICTIM #1] they both advised that [VICTIM #1]’s boyfriend Craig Patterson had been drinking “99 peaches” all day and was highly intoxicated and due to him being intoxicated he believed that [VICTIM #1] and [VICTIM #2] were “fu*king” is what the argument started from. [VICTIM #1] advised that [VICTIM #2] is her cousin and they were not “fu*king”. [VICTIM #1] also advised that Craig Patterson was highly intoxicated and was driving the red Volkswagen Beetle from the “swimming hole to where the vehicle was and then while they were having a verbal argument Craig Patterson slammed on the brakes and then punched [VICTIM #1] on the left side of her face causing redness and swelling.

While on scene you could see the tire marks left on the roadway from where Craig Patterson did slam on the brakes. [VICTIM #1] advised that they then exited the vehicle and this is where Craig Patterson then struck [VICTIM #2] in the face causing a cut to open above his left eye. [VICTIM #2] refused to allow me to take pictures of the cut on his face so I could add it to this report.

At this point Deputy Hill arrived on scene and I advised him to go down the road and attempt to locate the male. I did advise Deputy Hill that if he does locate the male to detain him and bring him back on scene so that I can speak with him. A short time later Deputy Hill had found the male wearing the exact clothing that Murray County 911 advised he was wearing and did detain him and bring him back to the scene.

While speaking with Craig Patterson while he was in the backseat of Deputy Hill’s patrol vehicle he did admit to hitting [VICTIM #1] in the face but would not go into detail as to what the argument was over. I advised Craig Patterson that I could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his person. I then asked Craig Patterson if he had consumed any alcoholic beverages during the day and he admitted to drinking “99 peaches”. I then asked Craig Patterson if he was driving the red Volkswagen Beetle and he did admit to driving the vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. When asked how much he had to drink Craig Patterson stated “a lot”.

I then asked Craig Patterson if he hit [VICTIM #2] due to both [VICTIM #1] and [VICTIM #2] stating he hit [VICTIM #2]. Craig Patterson denied hitting [VICTIM #2]. At this point I read Craig Patterson implied consent to which he agreed to give blood. Deputy Hill transported Craig Patterson to Murray Medical Center to give blood and then transported Craig Patterson to the Murray County Detention Center without incident. I will be turning in the blood box into evidence.
