A Medaryville man was questioned by Pulaski County Sheriff’s deputies on Wednesday after an alleged battery incident.
The suspect, Arnold Neely, 49, told police that he and the victim had been at the American Legion in Medaryville. When they returned home, the pair started arguing and Neely allegedly pushed the victim. The victim fell on the ground beside the wood stove and broke beer bottles and the glass table near the scene.
The victim told police that Neely hit her in the arm with a poker that is used for the wood stove. Police saw that the victim had a baseball sized lump on her elbow. The victim stated she didn’t want to press charges against Neely.
Charges of Battery with a Deadly Weapon Causing Serious Bodily Injury and Domestic Battery are being requested through the Pulaski County Prosecutor’s Office.
