23-year-old Austin Reese was in a domestic dispute with his girlfriend, Sydne McFarland, in the early hours of November 13th. McFarland advised officers that she and Reese had been arguing all day, and it escalated when he threw a bottle of soda at her back and punched her in the face, causing her lip to bleed. She stated that later that evening, when they were in the car arguing, Reese struck her on the head, resulting in her hitting her head against the passenger’s side window. Then, Reese stopped the car, walked to the passenger’s side, and grabbed McFarland’s arms to try to remove her from the vehicle. Officers observed injuries to McFarland and placed Reese into custody for domestic assault.
