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 8-22-22 I, Deputy Fleming responded to [500 BLOCK] Cherokee Dr in reference to a physical domestic that took place at [200 BLOCK] Sweet Water Rd. Murray County 911 advised that [VICTIM #1] (victim) was “beat up” by her husband Timothy Force (suspect/arrestee) at [200 BLOCK] Sweet Water Rd. [REDACTED] (complainant) had picked up [VICTIM #1] and [REDACTED BY AGENCY]. While en route to [500 BLOCK] Cherokee Dr Murray County 911 advised that [VICTIM #1]’s left eye almost swollen shut and black and blue in color.

Once I arrived to [500 BLOCK] Cherokee Dr I spoke with [VICTIM #1] and [REDACTED] who were both sitting on the front porch of the residence. [VICTIM #1]’s left eye was swollen almost to the size of a baseball and was black and blue in color. [VICTIM #1] did also have bruises in the shapes on finger tips on her right bicep, and also did have scratch marks on the left side of her neck. [VICTIM #1] was also holding a black pair of glasses that were broken due to the altercation. Pictures of all the injuries will be added to the attach docs section of this report.

When questioning [VICTIM #1] on what led up to altercation she stated “he (Timothy Force) has been giving me the silent treatment for a while now and while he was using the bathroom I questioned him on why he was doing that. He (Timothy Force) stood up said he was done with the conversation. I told him we needed to have this conversation and he then pushed me out of the doorway and it was my natural reflex to slapped him in the face. He (Timothy Force) then punched me at least four times where I then fell to the ground. Once I stood up he grabbed me by the arms saying he was sorry and it would not happen again”. She stated that [REDACTED BY AGENCY], both young juveniles, were in the house when this all occurred.

At this point Cpl Watson arrived on scene as well as EMS. I then went to my patrol vehicle while EMS was examining [VICTIM #1] to grab a camera to get pictures of the injuries. I then advised [VICTIM #1] of the Murray County domestic violence outreach office to assist her with the TPO process. Once I grabbed all the information from [VICTIM #1] myself and Cpl Watson then went to [200 BLOCK] Sweet Water Rd to attempt to make contact with Timothy Force.

When myself and Cpl Watson arrived at [200 BLOCK] Sweet Water Rd Cpl Watson had made contact with Timothy Force at the front door. Cpl Watson questioned Timothy Force on the altercation and Timothy Force did gave similar statements on what took place. Timothy stated he initially pushed [VICTIM #1] because she would not move and let him leave the room. Cpl Watson then placed Timothy Force in handcuffs to the rear, checked for fit, and double locked. Timothy Force’s [REDACTED BY AGENCY] was on scene and Timothy Force did give permission for his [REDACTED BY AGENCY] to stay with his friends [REDACTED] and [REDACTED] until [REDACTED] arrived on scene to pick his son up.

Timothy Force was transported to Murray County Detention Center by Cpl Watson and was turned over to jail staff without incident. Cpl Watson will be adding pictures of Timothy Force’s lip to his arrest report.
