On 29 Jul 11 Kelsey Dobbs, age 18, 1308 Williamson
Avenue Apt. 1B, New Matamoras, reported she involved in an argument
with her live-in boyfriend Matthew Kerr, age 19, in the bedroom
of their residence. Ms. Dobbs said her boyfriend blocked her
from leaving the room and shoved her in the stomach with his
fists. Nineteen weeks pregnant, Ms. Dobbs stated the action
caused her stomach pains and she feared Mr. Kerr may strike
her and injure her unborn child. Based on Ms. Dobbs’ statement,

On 29 Jul 11 Lt. Rhodes and Deputy Sheriffs
Anderson, Mankins and Metts investigated multiple reports of
hit-skip crashes involving the driver of a white van. In the
parking lot of the Wrangler Tavern the driver of the van, Sandy
K. Grayson, age 45, 10765 State Route 339, Vincent, first backed
into the rear driver side of a Suzuki SUV owned by Melinda S.
Gray, age 48, 50 A Railroad Street, Whipple. Continuing in reverse,
Mr. Grayson’s vehicle struck the front driver side fender
of a Ford F-150 owned by Timothy L. Simms, age 50, 2409 Cleveland
Avenue, Saint Albans, WV. Mr. Grayson then haphazardly entered
State Route 821 and traveled to the residence of Ben Lang at
270 State Route 821, Marietta, where he attempted to turn around
in the driveway. In doing so Mr. Grayson collided with the part
of Mr. Lang’s home that separates the home’s two
garage doors. Observing the collision, Mr. Lang phoned 911 and
followed Mr. Grayson in his vehicle until he arrived at the
Harmar Tavern. Initially questioned by the Marietta City Police
Department outside the tavern, Mr. Grayson claimed the crash
at the Whipple Tavern occurred then the driver of a vehicle
backed into his van. Lt. Rhodes later administered field sobriety
tests on Mr. Grayson, on which he performed poorly. In addition
to being arrested for OVI, Mr. Grayson was charged with being
in possession of an open container of alcohol after two open
cans of Miller Lite were found in his van’s cup holders.
