On December 2, 2022, I was dispatched to the area of Clover Valley Drive in reference to a traumatic injury. Upon my arrival, I notice the victim, [VICTIM #1], sitting outside with an ice pack on her right arm. [VICTIM #1] stated that she couldn’t move her hand or fingers. [VICTIM #1] then stated that she and her boyfriend, Nicholas Law, had gotten into a physical altercation, and he pushed her down, causing her to land on her arm the wrong way.
[VICTIM #1] stated that she and Nicholas had been arguing earlier, so she asked him to go pick up some milk from the store when he was out. [VICTIM #1] stated that when Nicholas returned and walked in the house with the milk, he threw the gallon of milk at her unprovoked. [VICTIM #1] then stated that she was cursing at Nicholas, saying, “Are you fu*king serious?” [VICTIM #1] stated another argument had started, and Nicholas started to walk back out the door. [VICTIM #1] stated that she then started walking towards Nicholas, and that is when he pushed her onto the back deck of the house.
[VICTIM #1] stated that after Nicholas pushed her, she started back towards him, and he pushed her again. [VICTIM #1] stated that she ran towards Nicholas one more time, and Nicholas grabbed her by the neck, pushing her again, and when she went to the ground, she fell on her right arm. [VICTIM #1] stated that Nicholas was about to get into his truck when she grabbed his shirt and told him he was not leaving. [VICTIM #1] stated that Nicholas had been physical with her many times before.
While having EMS check on [VICTIM #1]’s arm in the ambulance. I noticed blood in [VICTIM #1]’s ear. When asked about it, she stated that she had on earrings that were ripped out during the altercation. EMS also stated that [VICTIM #1] would need to be transported to the ER because he believes her arm is broken.
I then spoke to the complainant, [WITNESS #1], who stated that she was called by [VICTIM #1] and was asked to come get her from the residence on Homeplace Drive. [WITNESS #1] stated that she and Nicholas smith went and picked up [VICTIM #1]. [WITNESS #1] then stated when she got [VICTIM #1] to her residence, she called 911. [WITNESS #1] stated that this wasn’t the first time she had to go get [VICTIM #1] because of physical altercations between her and Nicholas.
I then went to the residence in the area of Home Place Drive, where I was able to speak to Nicholas. Nicholas stated that he and [VICTIM #1] had been in a physical altercation. Nicholas stated that when he returned home from the store with the milk, he and [VICTIM #1] started having an argument because [VICTIM #1] thought he had been gone too long. Nicholas stated that he decided to just leave, and as he was trying to leave, the [VICTIM #1] started to grab and pull at his hoodie.
Nicholas stated that he never hit [VICTIM #1], but shoved her when she was pulling his hoodie and he started to come out of the hoodie. Nicholas stated that [VICTIM #1] tried to push him down the steps as he was walking down the steps to get to his vehicle. Nicholas stated he was finally able to get to his vehicle, and [VICTIM #1] then ran and grabbed his shirt and told him, “You’re not leaving.” Nicholas stated that he then got into his truck, pulled off, and called 911.
I then walked into the residence at Homeplace Drive. I noticed a gallon of milk on the floor that was busted. Nicholas claimed that he had no idea how the milk became busted and that he had placed it on the table. Nicholas was also able to provide me video footage of him walking to his vehicle, and I was able to see [VICTIM #1] walk behind him, grab his shirt, and state, “You’re not leaving.”
Nicholas was found to be the predominant aggressor and placed under arrest. He was then searched and escorted to the back of my patrol vehicle. He was transported to the Newton County Detention Center.
Upon my arrival at the detention center, I secured my duty weapon and magizines, and he was turned over to the detention staff.
