A Medaryville man was arrested Tuesday after allegedly being involved in a domestic battery incident.
Police were called to a Jefferson Street address and when police knocked on the door, Carl Larkin told the officer that everything was fine and walked to the kitchen. The officer followed him inside the home and found a female victim with bruises and swelling to her face. She yelled that Larkin had hit her and the officer asked about the situation. The woman said that Larkin had come home and started yelling at her and hitting her with closed fists. She yelled at her daughter to call police and she did. She denied medical attention.
Larkin, 50, who had reportedly been drinking earlier in the evening, denied hitting the victim and said she had run out of the house and started yelling at him. He was taken into custody and arrested on a preliminary charge of Domestic Battery with a Prior Conviction.
This case has been forwarded to the Pulaski County Prosecutor’s Office for further review.
