34-year-old Thomas C Virden was involved in a domestic dispute with his wife, Myven Virden, at his apartment on November 18th. Officers arrived, spoke with Thomas, and were advised he and Myven are separated, have a private arrangement regarding the custody of their daughter, and argued over their daughter when she came to pick her up. Thomas told her to leave, but she refused to leave without their child and sat in a chair until he grabbed her and began to force her towards the door. Thomas’s mother filmed the physical altercation and, as officers reviewed it, determined Thomas to be the primary aggressor. Their daughter was released to the care of Myven, and Thomas was taken into custody for domestic assault.
