27-year-old Jimmy Lee Reed had a domestic incident with his girlfriend, Hannah Jawad, at his Continental Drive residence in the early hours of March 21st. When the detectives arrived, they spoke with Jawad, who advised them that she went to a bar with her boyfriend, Reed, and some friends. On the way home, an argument ensued between her and Reed, where Jawad told Reed to get out of her vehicle. When he exited the car, he grabbed her purse and walked away. Then, Reed started messaging Jawad, saying he was going to harm himself. So, Jawad called her friend, Savannah Cummings, to help her look for him, worried he might hurt himself. After 30 minutes of searching for Reed, they located him, and he got in Jawad’s back seat. While they were driving home, Reed started making suicidal statements and wrapping his belt around his neck. Jawad struggled, trying to unwrap the seatbelt from his neck. Then, Reed started hitting Jawad with the metal portion of the seatbelt, causing minor bleeding and swelling to the right side of her lower lip. Jawad stated that she swung at Reed in self-defense, which caused swelling to his left eye. As they continued driving to his residence, he rolled the rear window down and tried jumping out of the moving vehicle. So, Jawad grabbed Reed by his pants and pulled him back inside the car. When they finally got to his residence, Reed tried to take the car keys from Cummings and simultaneously started striking Jawad’s left shoulder with his elbow, which left a minor redness. Reed went inside the home, and Jawad waited outside for the police to arrive. Officers then spoke with Reed, who said he went to the bar with Jawad and did not touch her. Reed was deemed as the primary aggressor, and then he was taken into custody for domestic assault.
