BATTERY

GOLD DRIVE: A 55-year-old man was arrested by deputies on three counts of battery and one count of destruction of property Friday evening. Undersheriff Quenting Reynolds said the deputies responded to a report of a family fight and learned that the man had left the home. They found him in a gold Buick on Highway 14-16 where he admitted to getting into a fight with his family. Their father died two days before and the fight was over what to do with their father’s guns. The 55-year-old had blood streaks on his hands and arms. When deputies talked to the people at the home, they said he shoved his brother, 48, by the throat into the wall. The man’s sister-in-law, 43, tried to intervene and he also shoved her. Finally, the man’s sister, 53, pointed at him and said he wasn’t allowed in the home and he punched and broke a glass door in anger. Some of the glass hit his sister in the face.
