Feud ends in battery arrest

A man reportedly damaged nearly $1,000 worth of property that did not belong to him during a domestic dispute in Grovetown.

According to the incident report, Jeffrey Seals became upset after finding another man at the victim’s Dodge Lane apartment.

After the other man left the residence, Seals reportedly grabbed the victim by her throat and arms. The victim was able to escape Seals’ grasp and exit the home.

Seals then went inside the victim’s apartment and began to damage the property with his fist, police said.

According to the report, Seals told police that he struck a fish tank, several televisions and a dryer. Seals was unable to provide a written statement because of hand cuts.

Police observed red marks on the victim’s arms, but the victim refused EMS treatment.

After Seals was treated at Doctors Hospital, he was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center on charges of simple battery and criminal damage to property in the second degree.

Wayne Bailey was arrested and charged with pointing or aiming a gun or pistol at another at a Marshall Street residence after he accused a juvenile of walking past his residence and looking at him, according to the incident report.

The woman told police Bailey chased her son with a golf club. She also claimed Bailey held the golf club and threatened to beat her up. When the woman sent her children inside the house, she said she noticed Bailey pointing a gun at her.
