On 080623 at 1938 hours I Cpl. T. Neal (C81) responded to [3900 BLOCK] Mike Padgett Hwy, regarding a disturbance.
Upon arrival I spoke with William Johnson (arrested) regarding the disturbance, and he stated he wanted me to speak with [VICTIM #1] (complainant), since she called dispatch to report the incident. Upon speaking with [VICTIM #1], I was advised that the two them were arguing since 1624 hours about problems the two had in the past.
She stated she fell asleep and she assumed the argument was over. She stated when he awoke he began arguing again and she advised him that she would leave with her two daughters ([REDACTED BY AGENCY]/victims) because he was drunk and yelling around the children.
She stated as she attempted to leave in her mother’s Subaru ([REDACTED]), William jumped on the front hood of the vehicle and began striking the front windshield and kicking the front windshield in the presence of her daughters, causing them both to witness the act and damage. She stated upon telling him she was calling dispatch he climbed off the front hood and began pleading with her not to leave the residence.
Upon my arrival I observed the damage to the windshield and both juveniles in the rear seat of the vehicle. Upon contacting the owner of the vehicle ([VICTIM #2]/victim) by phone, she advised the estimated damage to the windshield would be $1000.00.
Williams was detained and committed to the CBWDC for the charge of Criminal Damage 2nd Degree and Cruelty to Children 2nd Degree (2 cts.). Warrants were approved and turned over to the Records Division, [REDACTED].
