36-year-old Ryan Mark Barr had a domestic altercation with his wife, Whitney Barr, at their Sterling Oaks Drive residence on January 15th. Later that day, Mrs. Barr called the authorities to report the incident. Mrs. Barr advised that she and Ryan had a verbal agreement stating that he could not reside at their home for at least 30 days to ensure that he would be fully sober when he came back. However, Mrs. Barr stated that he was allowed to visit for a few hours every day to see their 4-month-old son. Mrs. Barr then explained that Ryan left around 2 p.m. then called her at 6 p.m., asking if they needed any groceries. When Ryan returned, he put away the groceries and went upstairs to his music room, which is next to his son’s room. Ryan began to play music loudly, which concerned Mrs. Barr. She asked Ryan to turn the music down, but he ignored her and turned his music up louder. This prompted Mrs. Barr to open the door and unplug the sound system. Mrs. Barr walked out the door and turned around to talk to Ryan about the incident. Then, Ryan reached through the crack of the doorway and poked her in her eyes before pushing her back. Mrs. Barr said she yelled at him and told him to leave, which Ryan eventually did. Mrs. Barr told officers that she wished to prosecute for the attack. Ryan Barr was taken into custody for domestic assault on February 20th.
