On 20 Aug 09 Deputy Sheriffs Anderson and Mankins responded to the scene of a domestic dispute at 21283 State Route 676, Marietta. The victim, Brysen Lee, age 22, stated his stepfather, Edward Trotter, age 58, was intoxicated, repeatedly degraded him, harassed him for being lazy and subsequently assaulted him. Reportedly striking Mr. Lee with a milk jug, Mr. Trotter grabbed his stepson by the neck and attempted to force feed him with a fork. Mr. Lee said his stepfather grabbed him again by the neck but that he was able to free himself. Mr. Trotter admitted he was involved in a minor incident but minimized his role when confronted about his stepson’s allegations. Based on his investigation Deputy Anderson arrested Mr. Trotter for domestic violence and transported him to the Washington County Jail.

WEAPON FIRED DURING BRAWL

Around 10 pm last night Sgt. Underwood and Deputy Sheriff Anderson responded to an altercation involving a firearm at 517 Front Street, New Matamoras. The resident at the address, identified as John J. Peterson Jr., age 42, said the confrontation occurred after his nine and twelve year old daughters informed him a neighbor’s loose dog was growling and barking at him. Mr. Peterson said he was on his property, carrying a nine shot, .22 caliber revolver when the dog’s owner, William J. Hesson, age 47, 106 Main Street, New Matamoras, crossed onto his property and instigated an argument. During the argument Mr. Hesson tackled Mr. Peterson to the ground and the two exchanged several punches. Another male subject attempted to grab Mr. Peterson and at some point a struggle over the gun ensued and the weapon fired. A pellet from the one bird shot rounds loaded in the weapon struck a bystander by the name of Tracy Newlen in the abdomen and the crowd quickly dispersed.
