intoxicated the previous evening and initiated a confrontation.
An argument ensued over a number in Ms. Gill’s mobile
phone and Ms. Thompson shoved her mother onto a bed several
times. Ms. Gill said her daughter yelled and asked her to hit
her so they “could have matching jail cells.” Ms.
Gill stated she suffered a minor cut to her nose when her daughter
hit a cup of cold coffee she had in her hand. Deputy Sheriff
Smeeks later located Ms. Thompson hiding in a wooded area on
Alta Street in Marietta. Questioned about the incident, Ms.
Thompson stated did not intend to hurt her mother but admitted
to both shoving her mother and to hitting her mother’s
hand and causing the coffee cup to strike her mother’s
nose. As a result, Deputy Smeeks arrested Ms. Thompson for domestic
violence and transported her to the Washington County Jail.

violence. Traveling with his fifty-one year old father on State
Route 339 near School House Road, the juvenile grabbed the steering
wheel and attempted to jerk it to the side. The teenager’s
father struck his son’s hand to regain control of the
wheel and his son retaliated by striking him in the mouth. After
he pulled to the side of the road the father said his son kicked
him in the head so he exited the vehicle. The teenager gave
chase and repeatedly kicked his father in the legs. When the
father attempted to phone for help the juvenile usurped the
mobile phone and slammed it to the ground. Arriving at their
residence, the juvenile continued his tirade, screaming at the
top of his lungs and overturning furniture. At one point the
teenager told his father that he was going to cut his throat
while he was asleep.
