On Monday, Billy Brown, 38, Richmond, was arrested by Richmond police and charged with fourth-degree assault with a minor injury.
According to a citation, on Sept. 5, an officer responded in reference to a domestic violence situation where the victim called and said Brown pushed and hit her. While en route to the location, the officer was informed Brown had fled the scene. The officer contacted the victim while other officers canvassed the surrounding areas but were unable to locate Brown.
The citation states, the victim said she and Brown got into a verbal argument about Brown's illegal drug use. The argument started in the bedroom she and Brown share together. She said Brown pushed her towards the bed in the corner of the room, and in fear of being hit, she shoved Brown to get him away. She said she could go to the other side of the bed and create distance, and Brown picked up a remote control and a small drone and threw both at her. The drone allegedly hit the victim on her left hand and created a small cut on her index finger which bled. The remote allegedly hit the victim on the left side of her head and her ear. The officer noted redness to her left ear.
The citation states, Brown denied hitting the victim with the items listed. The victim said she called 911, and before Brown left the residence, the victim said Brown "used dope in the bathroom." The officer noted a used, uncapped syringe in the bathroom sink of Brown's residence.
According to the citation, later on, Sept. 5, 9-1-1 received multiple hang-up calls from the location. Officers arrived on the scene, and the victim answered the door. When asked if Brown was in the residence, he answered the door as well. He was placed in handcuffs and searched.
Brown was taken to the Madison County Detention Center.
