22-year-old Danmion Eddings Jr. got into an argument with Caitlyn Wheeler, the mother of his child, over gas money to put in her vehicle in the wee hours of October 24th. Officers were dispatched to Buena Vista Pike for a call regarding a domestic disturbance and spoke with Wheeler as they arrived. Wheeler told officers that she and Eddings were having a verbal altercation when he started to call her out of her name and stated, “If you hit me, I’m gonna hit you back.” Wheeler reported that Eddings pulled her off the couch and began to hit her in the face and that she took his phone to call his mom to tell her about how he was acting.

Officers were told that Eddings stood over Wheeler and grabbed her by the throat before demanding his phone while wielding a butter knife. Wheeler stated that she then locked herself in a room and that Eddings punched a hole in through the door while she was on the phone with officers. Eddings told officers that the entire argument was over Wheeler wanting money and that he “had enough” before shoving her. Eddings stated that Wheeler was the one who grabbed the knife and that he left the residence after attempting to get his phone back. Police observed markings on Wheeler’s collarbone and throat, as well as a hole in the door, both corroborating with her statements, and determined Eddings to be the primary aggressor. Eddings was taken into custody for aggravated assault.
