Police responded to this location regarding a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival, police spoke with Sharon Bruce. Ms. Bruce said that she and her son, William Russell, were involved in a conversation that devolved into cursing one another and ultimately became a physical altercation. Ms. Bruce said she was already under stress due to her daughter having surgery today. She said she told her son that he and his family could stay at her home for a few days. Ms. Bruce said that her son lost his job and didn’t have a place to stay. She said that he disrespected her by using derogatory labels during his verbal attack. She said she told her son to leave. She said he refused to do so and that is when she pushed him while trying to force him to leave. She said her son then began banging on the door and windows. She said she opened the door and threw a frying pan at him and told him to leave. She said that her son then came back inside, and they began to wrestle with one another, which eventually led to Mr. Russell holding her down on the floor. Ms. Bruce stated that, at some point, she was able to get to her feet and her son started to go outside again. It was at this point, according to Ms. Bruce, that she threw some steak knives at him.
Police spoke to Mr. Russell, who corroborated much of Ms. Bruce’s story. Neither had any marks and/or injuries to suggest who the primary aggressor may have been. Mr. Russell agreed to leave the property and to not return. Ms. Bruce stated to police and Mr. Russell that he was trespassed from the property. Mr. Russell said that he understood the restrictions placed on him by the trespass notification given him. He said that he would not be back.
