Saturday Afternoon Domestic Arrest

Laurens Police were dispatched to Downs Street at 1:52 Saturday afternoon about a domestic altercation. On arrival a man told officers that everything was all right, and that he and his live-in girlfriend had been arguing. The argument reportedly began when he began fussing at her for not washing his clothes. The woman reportedly indicated he had pushed her in the chest, and Officer Craven reported observing redness to her. The man said she had sprayed him with Clorox bleach, but there was no discoloration of his clothing to substantiate that. 57-year-old James Henry Gallman of 112 Downs Street, also known as “Mumbles,” was arrested on a Criminal Domestic Violence charge and delivered to the Johnson Detention Center.
