Why don't you go ahead and give the house number? You already gave what street he lives on.

Ah that's to bad. I think they should charge her with filing a false police report. These women need to be taught a lesson for not putting their men in jail when the state nazi party demands it!!

Sad to say, this is a familiar pattern. I was a volunteer EMT for several years and we'd go on ambulance calls for domestic violence incidents. We weren't even there to arrest anyone and many, many times BOTH the man and woman would come after us with baseball bats, sticks, whatever. And when the police would show up, the woman would go ballistic, "Don't you take my man away!" You really have to wonder...

Personally, I think "Ice" should be jailed or at least kept out of public view just because of his stupid haircut; is that supposed to make him look "bad," or what? Geez...

So what. It's public information that anyone can get from the County Property appraisers site.

It's sorry Skank woman like this Liar who make domestic battery charges difficult for woman who are actually abused. She called the Police and said she had been "Hit" when the Police arrived she changed her story to being "Pushed". he still went to jail. Problem is, Police will never arrest a woman for lying and wasting their time.

Sadly, this is a typical pattern of domestic abuse. The abuser either makes some serious threats to the victim, or apologizes so well that the victim drops the charges, thinking "things will get better now."

Unfortunately, they will only be better for a minute, and then the abuse will start again until it escalates to another call. It will get worse and worse until the victim has enough ands gets away for good, or is killed by the abuser.

If the victim gets away, the abuser will stalk the victim and eventually seriously maim them for life, or kill them.

We need new ways of handling domestic violenc - beginning with educating people on how NOT to become a victim of such a controlling manipulative violent person!!!

Take note that I never put gender labels on either the abuser or victim - domestic violence goes both ways - either way it needs to stop.

"Cynic," I agree with you; as I said in my earlier post, emergency services workers see this all of the time. And sadly many of the calls the emergency services workers would receive would be because the person who was abused had been killed by their abuser. It's really bad when there's children in the family, too; the kids see this type of behavior as "normal," and they grow up doing the same thing...

Yes, they should charge her with filing a false report and charge her for the $$$ wasted in responding to this crap.

I have to disagree with this. Police force charges that are blow way out of proportion. I have been in an abusive relationship with bruises and they laughed at me...then my husband and I got into a fight police were called and he was charged with Aggravated Assult...the women are not always to blame thank you very much...Police who want a good story to tell people are as much to blame.
