On 110222 at approximately 0651hrs I, Deputy T. Smith C607, was dispatched to [3000 BLOCK] Deans Bridge Rd Lot [REDACTED] about a domestic. Upon arrival, contact was made with Brown, Monica (suspect), and Brown, Leslie (suspect).
Leslie stated that Monica was staying at her house with her dog, but she needed to go. Leslie stated that she was up getting her kids ready for school when she discovered Monica’s dog had used the bathroom on the floor. Leslie stated she went into Monica’s room to wake her up to clean the mess up after her dog. Leslie stated that Monica woke up and was yelling, cursing, and trying to fight.
Leslie stated that Monica charged her in the hall and then the two started fighting. Leslie stated that during the altercation she struck Monica with the firearm she had grabbed from her bedside table. Leslie stated after they broke up the fight, Monica went outside and kept trying to get back inside. Leslie stated that she stepped outside and fired a “warning shot” into the air “because that’s what the law says she has to do”
Monica stated that Leslie struck her in the head with her pistol. Monica stated that she did wake up angry, but only because of how Leslie woke her up. Monica stated that she was going to leave the property, but did not think it was acceptable for Leslie to hit her with the gun. Monica stated that Leslie did fire the handgun in the air while on the back porch.
While on the scene I recovered the purple and silver SCCY CPX-2 9mm handgun S/N: C104288 which would be turned into 400 Walton Way as evidence. I did not observe any visible injuries to either party, due to being unable to identify the primary aggressor both parties were advised how to obtain a warrant for simple battery. Due to the statement of both parties matching Leslie was taken into custody for reckless conduct for the discharging of the firearm into the air.
