According to the report, the female victim and 42-year-old Gerald Lee Chadwick were sitting in a hot tub in the back yard of the residence talking and drinking beer when Chadwick began to call the woman unfavorable names. Chadwick became angry when the woman stated that he needed to leave and he punched the door twice breaking the glass and part of the wood of the door, the report states.
The victim told police that Chadwick grabbed her by the throat and threw her on a bed in her son's room. The son who had been in the backyard entered the house and began to yell at Chadwick to leave his mother alone, the report states. The victim threw her cellphone to the son to call 911. As he attempted to call, Chadwick grabbed him, threw him into a wall and began twisting the son's arm and took the phone, according to police. The female victim grabbed a level which was in the room and began defending her son by hitting Chadwick in the back. Again, Chadwick grabbed the woman by the throat and began assaulting her while the son was able to escape to a neighbor's house to call 911. Chadwick attempted to lock the doors of the home to prevent the woman from leaving, but she was able to escape through an unlocked door and run to the neighbor's house for help, reports state.
As police arrived, Chadwick refused to come out of the home. When police entered the home, Chadwick stated that he had been assaulted by the victim and turned to show officers his injuries. As an officer was attempting to pat him down for weapons, Chadwick turned and punched the officer in the jaw. Assisting officers helped force Chadwick to the ground, where he continued to resist arrest, and according to the report, officers threatened to shoot Chadwick with a taser if he continued to resist. Chadwick continued to threaten officers, yell to the neighbors for help and beat his head on the patrol car, the report states.
Chadwick was arrested on charges of assault causing bodily injury family violence, assault with injury family violence by strangulation, assault on a public servant, and interference with an emergency telephone call.
