A Woodbury woman was charged with vandalism on July 8 after breaking two windows on a car belonging to a neighbor's friend.
Cannon County Sheriff's Deputy Patrick Fann was dispatched to TNT Apartments on Sunny Slope Road on that date in reference to a reported vandalism. When he arrived he spoke with Cody Rumsey, who said he had gone to 191 Cobb Lane, Woodbury, to visit his friend Justin Rogers.
Rumsey said while he was outside Rogers' house, Justin's ex-girlfriend, Lacy Peters, who lives next door at 193 Cobb Lane, came over and started telling him to leave. Rumsey said he went inside and sat on the couch.
At the time, according to Rumsey, Peters called Jerry Barrett, the landlord, to try to get Barrett to make Rumsey leave the property. However, Barrett reportedly advised Peters that Rogers could have any guest at his house he wanted.
That is when, according to Rumsey, Peters came outside with a ball bat and said, "I'll make you leave" and walked over and busted out the passenger side rear window and then walked to the other side of the (Chevy) truck and busted out the driver's side window.
Rumsey said that as he was leaving, Peters also swung and hit the rear taillight with the bat. Rumsey said Rogers witnessed the entire event.
Deputy Fann arrested Peterson and transported her to the Cannon County Jail for processing.
