Charles Jeffrey Collier, 39, 197 Oakland Road, Union, is charged by the Union County Sheriff’s Office with assault and battery third-degree.
The incident report states the victim said between 9:30 p.m. Tuesday and 9 a.m. Wednesday she was assaulted by Collier. She said they were both highly intoxicated.
The victim told the responding deputy she and Collier were riding around somewhere between Union and Santuc when he jumped on her. The woman said she did not know what caused Collier to attack her. She said she remembered being outside the vehicle in the roadway and Collier hitting her in the face.
The woman said her arm felt like it was broken. The report states her arm was purple and had a large knot on it. It states she also had a black eye and several large knots on her head.
The report states when questioned Wednesday morning the victim was too intoxicated to give many details about the assault. The responding deputy took photos of the victim’s injuries as evidence.
The victim’s arm was not broken and the report states she said she did not want to press charges. A warrant was nevertheless issued for Collier’s arrest and he was taken into custody Wednesday evening and transported to jail.
Assault And Battery
A 16-year-old juvenile is charged by the Union Public Safety Department with assault and battery after an argument with another teen at school degenerated into violence.
The incident report states on Tuesday afternoon, a teacher observed the two students in a loud argument near the school library. As the teen charged in the incident attempted to hit the teen he was arguing with, the teacher pulled the other student away and held on to him. The 16-year-old proceeded to strike the other student and in the process also struck the teacher.
An officer was near the incident behind a group of students. When he got to the area, another teacher was taking the 16-year-old into a stairwell. The officer then handcuffed the teen who the report describes as being out of control. The 16-year-old was later charged and then released to his mother.
It was determined the other student did not throw a punch because he was being held at the time of the incident.
Shoplifting, Drug Paraphernalia
An arrest for shoplifting is bad, but it gets worse if the police find drug paraphernalia in your purse.

A clerk told the officer a black female — later identified as Booker — entered the store with a black purse. She said a customer advised her Booker was placing items in her purse. The managers then walked up behind Booker and noticed the items were two boxes of Dots candy.
The clerk said Booker then purchased a Dr. Pepper and a tube of toothpaste and attempted to leave the store without paying for the candy. Booker was stopped by the managers and waited for the officer to arrive.
