53-year-old Rubin Lemont Miles had a domestic incident with his girlfriend, Yvonne Wescott, near their Pepperwood Drive residence late February 22nd. Wescott alerted the authorities, advising them that she pulled into the neighborhood and observed Miles having an issue with his Ford Explorer in the middle of the road. She stopped to assist him, using her vehicle to get his SUV to their house. Wescott stated she was upset because her car sustained minor scratches after pushing his Explorer and wanted him to apologize for being careless. Miles refused and became irate in their front yard, so she grabbed a baseball bat underneath the bench by their front door and put it under her arm. She added that she feared for her safety once the argument escalated.

Wescott said Miles saw the bat and “lost control of his anger,” punching her in the face repeatedly, causing her to lose her balance. During this, she said he grabbed the bat and hit her on the right side of her abdomen. Officers noticed she had swelling to the left side of her cheek, with her eye nearly swollen shut, and bruising to her stomach. Wescott provided officers with camera footage from her ring bell, which showed him removing his dark-colored jacket and changing into a red Detroit Red Wings hoodie before fleeing. A warrant was issued for his arrest. Miles was taken into custody for domestic assault on April 22nd.
