BUFFALO — A man and a woman were arrested Sunday after allegedly getting into fight that left both of them covered in blood.
Mark Eugene Mitchell, 38, 302 Drug Store St., Buffalo, and Christy Darlene Bradburn, 35, 307 Drug Store St., Buffalo, were each charged by the Union County Sheriff’s Office with criminal domestic violence.
The incident report stated a deputy was dispatched just before 2 a.m. Sunday to Bradburn’s residence in reference to a domestic situation involving an assault. While en route, the deputy was advised by dispatch that the male subject, later identified as Mitchell, had left to go to Wallace Thomson Hospital.
He was also advised that the complainant, later identified as Bradburn, wanted to leave the residence. Dispatch also told the deputy that Bradburn had said she’d hit Mitchell with a vase and that he’d knocked out one of her teeth.
When the deputy arrived at the scene, he found broken and scattered items on the porch. When he met with Bradburn, he noticed the house was in disarray as if there had been a fight.
The deputy then asked Bradburn what had happened, and was told that she and Mitchell had been out to a local restaurant earlier. She said they’d both been drinking and when returned home they got into an argument that turned physical.
Bradburn is described as having blood all over her mouth, arms and hand.
The deputy was then notified by dispatch that Mitchell was in the emergency room with several lacerations to his head and shoulder. Dispatch told the deputy that Mitchell wanted to press charges against Bradburn.
Bradburn was then placed under arrest and taken to jail, but upon arrival suffered a seizure. She was then taken to the hospital by the Union County EMS.
While there, Bradburn was treated for a broken hand. She told the attending physician that the break had occurred in July. A cast was then placed on her right hand and forearm.
The report stated that due to the severity of Mitchell and Bradburn’s injuries, the deputy was unable to determine who was the primary aggressor and charged both with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.
In addition to interviewing Bradburn, the deputy got a written statement from Mithcell. He also got a written statement from a neighbor who heard the fight and said they been attacked by Bradburn with a baseball bat. The neighbor, however, declined to press charges.
More Criminal Domestic Violence
BUFFALO — A Buffalo couple is facing charges after allegedly getting into a fight that continued in jail.
Jonathan Lee Blackwell, 21, and Tyffeni Shawn Greenway, 23, both of 1208 Linersville Road, #15, Buffalo, were charged by the sheriff’s office with criminal domestic violence. Greenway was also charged with a second count of criminal domestic violence and giving false information to law enforcement.
The incident report states deputies were dispatched Friday afternoon to the Linersville Road area to investigate a reported fight between a man and a woman. Dispatch advised the deputies that the man had ripped the woman’s shirt off while they were in the roadway.
Deputies found the two in the 1000 block of Linersville Road and saw the woman sitting on the side of the road crying. Her shirt was ripped and tied around her.
One the deputies spoke to the man, later identified as Blackwell, who he noticed had scraches all over his upper torso. Another deputy spoke to the woman who told him her name was Tasha Upton. She was later identified as Greenway.
When questioned about the incident, Blackwell told the deputy he and Greenway had gotten into an argument over his sister saying something derogatory about her children on Facebook. Blackwell said he wanted Greenway to go fight his sister over the posting, but she wouldn’t. He said Greenway did eventually leave to go fight his sister and that’s when a fight in the road occurred.
Neither Blackwell nor Greenway would give any information about the fight, but after deputies spent several minutes trying to figure out what happened, Blackwell admitted pushing Greenway and ripping her shirt. He then put his hands behind his back and told the deputies “let’s go.” Blackwell was placed under arrest.
Greenway was then questioned about what had happened and told deputies essentially the same story as Blackwell, but would not say anything about the fight in the road. When asked about the scratches on Blackwell’s neck, back and arms, Greenway said they were from having sex.
Based on the physical evidence, the information provided by the caller, and the lack of cooperation from Blackwell and Greenway, the primary aggressor could not be determined. It was for those reasons, plus the fact that they’d been living together for two months, that Greenway and Blackwell were both charged with criminal domestic violence.
The two where then taken to jail where, during the booking process, Greenway walked by Blackwell as he was being fingerprinted and slapped him on the side of his head. The two had to be restrained.
Greenway was then charged with a second count of criminal domestic violence. She was also charged with giving false information to law enforcement for telling deputies her name was Tasha Upton.
While she didn’t give deputies her real name, jailers recognized her from a previous arrest.
The report stated that Greenway has several charges against her from neighboring counties and has at least three different names that she uses.
UNION — A man ended up in jail after allegedly resisting a deputy’s attempt to arrest him for being intoxicated.
Jimmy Arthur Rhinehart, 44, 116 Walker Heights, Union, was charged by the sheriff’s office with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
The incident report stated that a deputy was on duty at Wallace Thomson Hospital shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday when Rhinehart asked to be escorted to the cafe. The deputy noticed that Rhinehart was standing in the ER waiting room by the phone trying to make a call. She could also smell alcohol on him.
When Rhinehart turned around, the deputy noticed his eyes were bloodshot and she could smell alcohol on his breath as he spoke. As she escorted him to the cafe, the deputy asked Rhinehart how he was going to get home. He said that if he couldn’t catch a ride he was going to walk. She said he couldn’t walk home because he was under the influence and that he was going to jail.
Rhinehart then started getting loud, saying he wasn’t going to jail, that he was going home. The deputy then told him he was being placed under arrest for public intoxication. As she attempted to handcuff him, Rhinehart pulled away. The deputy was able to get control of him and handcuff him. She then called dispatch to ask that a deputy be sent to take Rhinehart to jail.
Until he was placed in the patrol car, Rhinehart continued to try to pull away and resisted the deputy’s attempts to search him. After being place in the car, Rhinehart was transported to jail where he was also charged with resisting arrest.
