32-year-old Solecia Byrd had a scuffle with her sister, Roneka Byrd, at an apartment complex on Lebanon Pike in the early hours of October 27th. Roneka advised officers that she let her sister stay at her apartment because Solecia’s lights were not working. She was watching her friend’s children, and Solecia began to yell at them to quiet down because she was trying to sleep. Roneka told her she did not like how she was handling the kids and to leave if it was going to be an issue. Solecia told her to make her leave, sparking an argument, then she grabbed Roneka by her hair and began to strike her repeatedly in the head and spit on her. Officers observed a small cut and dried-up blood in Roneka’s ear. Roneka did not wish to prosecute. However, officers chose to prosecute on Roneka’s behalf. Solecia was taken into custody for domestic assault on December 18th.
Solecia Byrd was booked on the summons of domestic assault on December 18th.
