60-year-old Deborah Shannon was charged with domestic assault after a deputy observed a video of her seemingly striking her roommate in an attempt to retrieve her phone.
On November 6th, Stewart County Sheriff’s Deputy Etherton responded to reports of a domestic assault at 1804 Cumberland City Road. When he arrived, he made contact with Jessica Shannon, a resident at the location, who claimed she had video evidence of an assault.
Deputy Etherton then made contact with Deborah Shannon, who had a noticeable bump on her forehead and claimed she was assaulted. The deputy watched the video, which showed Deborah stating, “give me my phone,” then swinging at Jessica, appearing to hit her before the video stopped.
After watching the video, the deputy asked Jessica how Deborah got the injury on her head. She stated Deborah fell after she struck her and hit her head on a flower pot. Deborah was determined to be the primary aggressor and was taken into custody.
Deborah Shannon was arrested and charged with domestic assault. Her bond was set at $1,000.
