A Union man ended up in jail after he allegedly knocked a woman down and then hit her.
Matthew David Arnold, 31, 1107 W. Main St., Union, is charbed by the Union Public Safety Department with criminal domestic violence.
The incident report states an officer was called to Arnold’s residence on the morning of June 8 in reference to domestic incident involving an assault. The victim told the officer that she and a witness were in the residence when Arnold got home. The woman said Arnold was loud, boisterous and intoxicated. She said she did not know why he was acting that way, but that he shoved her several times, knocking her down.
The witness said that while the victim was down Arnold struck her in the head and face.
The victim said she’d never seen this side of Arnold and it scared her.
The report states the officer had noticed a man going into the house when he’d driven up. After hearing from the victim and the witness, the responding officer and two other officers went into the residence to find Arnold. The report states Arnold had slipped out the back door and ran.
A K-9 Unit with the Union County Sheriff’s Office was called in to track down Arnold. The report states the dog picked up Arnold’s trail at the back of the residence and followed to the back of the old Quincy’s restaurant. Arnold was then taken into custody and transported to jail.
