29-year-old Timothy Howse had a domestic altercation with his ex-girlfriend, Jasmin Carter, near Exit 47A on I-24 West in the early hours of November 8th, 2023. Officers received a call advising that a male, later identified as Howse, and a female, later identified as Carter, were fighting on the side of the interstate. When officers arrived, they located Carter, and she stated she and Howse had broken up in January. Carter explained that she and Howse were traveling on I-24 West when they started arguing about her new relationship. The argument then escalated when they began hitting each other. However, Carter did not specify who hit who first. Carter said Howse pulled over at Exit 47A, exited the car, walked over to the passenger side, and dragged her out of the vehicle. They continued hitting each other, during which Carter grabbed his hair, and Howse “choked” her, adding she could not breathe but did not lose consciousness. Then, Carter stated a passerby pulled over to check on them and called the police. Seeing this, Howse returned to the car and drove off without Carter. Officers spoke with the passerby, who advised them that when he pulled over, he realized Howse was on top of her, punching her repeatedly. This prompted him to tell Howse to leave her alone and called 911. Carter did not wish to prosecute for the attack, but officers prosecuted on her behalf and obtained a warrant for his arrest. Howse was taken into custody for domestic assault on April 29th, 2024.
