Holiday Drive, Marietta, reported her husband returned home
at 11:30 pm the previous evening in an intoxicated state and
would follow her around their house while verbally abusing

to leave the home but she said her husband would grab her arms
and at one point sat on the hood of her car to keep her from
leaving. Mrs. Molden said she did not feel threatened but phoned

it best that they separate for the evening. Closing this case

to a friend’s residence for the evening.
