CHURCH HILL — A Hawkins County man was jailed Sat., June 8, after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend and broke all of the windows out of her car with a motorcycle helmet.
Hawkins Co. Sheriff’s Deputy Eric Pease responded shortly after 6 p.m. on that date to a location in the 700 block of Webster Valley Road to investigate an assault complaint.
On arrival, Pease said, he came in contact with Michael Wayne Gibson, 28, of Church Hill, and a female who were standing in the front yard of the residence.
The woman, the deputy noted in his report, was crying and the “irate” Gibson had “blood on his right hand”.
According to the woman’s statement, she and Gibson were standing “in the middle of the road on Webster Valley and Mr. Gibson got irate and tried to strike her with a helmet, striking the rear glass (of her vehicle) busting the window”.
When the woman attempted to get away from Gibson, he allegedly grabbed her by the head and hair, “striking her in the face on the left side and bit her on the left arm,” the report continues.
“I observed what appeared to be a bite mark on the left arm and redness and blood on the left side of (the woman’s) face from the blood on Mr. Gibson’s hand,” Pease wrote.
The woman was able to get away and fled to another location on Webster Valley where Gibson “showed up” and “busted the other windows out of the vehicle with the motorcycle helmet which was located in the back seat of the vehicle”.
Pease said he asked Gibson why he was so irate, “and he stated that ‘she shouldn’t be raising hell on me’”.
Gibson was arrested on charges of aggravated domestic assault and vandalism over $1,000 and transported to the Hawkins Co. Jail for booking.
According to the report, all windows were broken out of the woman’s vehicle and a dent was made in the driver’s side door.
