46-year-old Patty Shrum had a domestic incident with her boyfriend, James McChesney, at their Thuss Avenue residence in the early hours of March 5th. McChesney advised the responding officers that Shrum had attacked him approximately four days ago. McChesney then lifted his shirt, showing officers the deep scratch marks and bruises on his shoulder. When officers tried to take a photo for evidence, McChesney pulled his shirt down, stating he did not want Shrum to get in trouble. McChesney then refused to provide any additional information regarding the altercation. Shrum told detectives that she and McChesney had a scuffle because she did not want to give him a can of beer. Then, Shrum said they wrestled while she tried to keep the beer away from McChesney, resulting in him getting scratched. Shrum was deemed as the primary aggressor and was taken into custody for domestic assault.
