_ 6510 Ringgold Rd.: On Sunday, police were called to the 4A’s Inn in regard to a domestic assault. According to a police report, when officers arrived they found a couple in room 180. Police had received several calls earlier in the day about a couple arguing constantly. Both had been drinking and the male had a bloody lip and what seemed to be slight bruising around his eyes. During the initial interview the man said that his partner, Elizabeth Renee Owens, of Florence, Ala., had done the damage to his face. Owens told police that she and the man had been arguing and another man known as “Tank,” had grabbed her by the hair and assaulted her.
The report states that officers located “Tank” and interviewed him in his motel room. He told officers that he heard the couple arguing all the way in the front of the hotel complex. Hotel management had also heard the conflict throughout the evening. “Tank” said he had come to the couple’s room and saw Owens push the man down several times inside the room, breaking some of the furniture. The physical confrontation continued until “Tank” saw Owns punch the man in the face. At that point, “Tank” said he stepped in and grabbed Owens by the hair and shoulders in an attempt to get her off the male subject. Owens then called 911 to report the assault committed upon her by “Tank.” The report states that based on the evidence and statements by those involved, Owens was taken into custody.
She was charged with Domestic Assault and is due to appear in East Ridge Municipal Court on July 26.
