On 11/13/2022, I Officer Cover responded to a “Family fight” at [4100 BLOCK] Sammar St NW where I met with [REDACTED BY AGENCY] and Preston Bundy.
Upon arrival Ms. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated that her boyfriend (Mr. Bundy) got drunk and became aggressive. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] also stated that he only gets aggressive when he drinks and that it was an ongoing issue. When I asked Ms. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] how the incident started, she stated that he was drinking a beer and she made a comment about him drinking. Mr. Bundy then left the house and got drunk at another location, came back to the house and damaged the screen door by kicking it in, even though the door was unlocked. Mr. Bundy then proceeded to yell at Ms. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] about him not being respected while breaking a candle, bowl and TV.
Ms. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated that she recorded some of Mr. Bundy’s behavior and then called the police while he was walking in and out of the house. Ms. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] then hid her phone and told Mr. Bundy that she recorded him and called the police. Mr. Bundy then grabbed Ms. [REDACTED BY AGENCY]’s right arm and demanded her phone but she refused to tell him where she put it. Mr. Bundy then left the house on foot before officers arrived. Ms. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] also stated that their son didn’t wake up while Mr. Bundy was yelling and breaking things.
After Officers left, Ms. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] called 911 again and stated that Mr. Bundy came back (approximately ours later) and kicked in the second door, damaging the frame and door latch after she locked it. Mr. Bundy became aggressive and started yelling and banging on the wall, causing their son to cry. Officers then arrived on scene shortly after and heard Mr. Bundy yelling at Ms. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] while she was holding their crying son. I then placed Mr. Bundy under arrest and transported him to the Newton County jail.
Mr. Bundy was charged with criminal damage 2nd degree (16-7-23) and cruelty to children 2nd Degree (16-5-70). Ms. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] was given a case card and informed of how to receive a copy of this report and the TPO process. Ms. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] also stated that she did not want to press charges.
