An argument between a local couple led to a charge of domestic assault being levied against the husband on Sept. 4.
Cannon County Sheriff’s Deputy Seth Perry was dispatched to 166 Petty Gap Road that day in reference to a domestic assault in progress.
Upon arrival he was met on the porch by Audry Lulow, who said her daughter and her son-in-law, Dillion Reger, were arguing inside the home.
Deputy Perry went inside and saw Reger standing in front of his wife, who was sitting. Reger was yelling at her. She was crying.
The deputy asked Reger to step outside on the porch and have a seat, which he did.
Deputy Perry then spoke to the victim, who said her husband had shoved her and had placed his hands around her throat and applied pressure. She also said her husband had threatened to hurt her if she called the cops and that after he got out of jail he would “hurt her bad.”
Deputy Perry observed some faint red marks on the victim’s neck. He also obtained written statements from the victim and Lulow.
He referred the wife to the Cannon County SAVE domestic violence assistance agency and informed her of her rights as a victim.
Reger was arrested and transported to the Cannon County Jail. Bond was set at $5,000. Initial court date is Oct. 4.
