Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk

Deputy Sweat was dispatched to a Clinton area home at 10:24 last night on an anonymous call about a domestic incident. A man indicated he and his live-in girlfriend got into an argument over him allegedly cheating on her. He said he would not let her leave because she was intoxicated, and at one point had to restrain her from leaving. She claimed he came home and threw water on her and pulled her to different locations in the house. Deputy Sweat noted no marks on the arms to corroborate her comments. The woman’s son said he’d left during the argument, but did say that his mother’s boyfriend had told him not to let her leave while intoxicated. The girlfriend left when her brother came to get her.
