Deputy Jamie Lee Edwards was dispatched to a Fountain Inn area residence at 5:43 yesterday afternoon on a report of assault with injuries. He arrived to find a 31-year-old woman with injuries around her temple, neck, chest and arms. She said she woke up at noon and fixed a meal for her and her live-in boyfriend. She said she got a call about a friend of hers being arrested and she became upset. She said that her boyfriend then flipped and grabbed her arm, then began to hit her. The boyfriend, a 30-year-old Laurens man, reportedly had left the scene.
In talking with the boyfriend, Deputy Edwards reportedly also observed injuries on him. He was arrested and held in the Johnson Detention Center, pending a warrant to charge him with Criminal Domestic Violence. Meanwhile, charges were also being considered for the girlfriend.
