72-year-old Kathleen Bailey had a domestic dispute with her husband of 13 years, James Mosely, at Scott Valley Drive on December 23rd. Mosely called the police, advising them that he and Bailey had a verbal argument that turned physical. Bailey could be heard yelling in the background as he called the police a second time to give an update on their situation. Officers arrived and spoke with both parties separately. They observed visible swelling on Mosely’s left leg, but he refused medical attention. He stated he was unsure how he received the injury but informed them that Bailey struck him repeatedly and that he was willing to prosecute. Bailey told them that she grabbed him by the shirt and that after he allegedly hit her, she “slapped him around.” Due to her admission and his visible injuries, she was taken into custody for domestic assault.
