Area man arrested after domestic dispute

Thursday, October 8, 2009

Jerry Buchholz
A Brazil man was recently arrested and formally charged with several misdemeanors for his alleged involvement in a domestic dispute that took place in a parking lot of a local business.

According to information provided by the Brazil Police Department, specific details about the ongoing investigation are being withheld to protect the victim and the investigation.

On Sunday evening, an unidentified caller reported to 911 dispatchers at the Clay County Justice Center that a man and a woman were involved in an altercation at the location. When officers arrived, the struggle was still happening.

Apparently Jerry R. Buchholz II, 37, had battered, pushed the woman to the ground and refused to let her leave before officers arrived. Refusing to back away from the victim, Buchholz took an aggressive stance with officers.

According to the incident report, they told him to stop or he would be Tasered. When he didn't, the officers deployed a Taser.

Once in custody, the suspect continued to be verbally abusive, combative and refused to follow instructions. Officers issued another warning about Buchholz's disorderly conduct, but he continued to struggle with them and attempted to leave.

Buchholz allegedly told officers, "OK, I'm done," after he was Tasered a second time.

When questioned, the victim reported Buchholz threw her phone away when she tried to call for help.

TransCare personnel checked the injuries of both Buchholz and the victim at the scene.

Afterward, Buchholz was transported and booked into the CCJC on preliminary charges. Jail officials confirmed he later bonded out on a $5,000 cash bond (with 10 percent allowed) to wait for formal arraignment on Nov. 9.

On Monday, the Clay County Prosecutor's Office filed formal charges against Buchholz, including three class A misdemeanor counts of domestic battery, resisting law enforcement, interference with the reporting of a crime and two class B misdemeanor counts of public intoxication and disorderly conduct in Clay County Circuit Court.

Jerry is a good man hard worker and would help anyone that needed it. Dont always believe what you read or hear about someone.Everyone makes mistakes.

Good deal. I'm glad that the "victim" is okay and that hopefully justice will prevail in this case. In domestic situations there are several victims, including, family members.

Praying for the victim family.

A GOOD man does not beat people. A GOOD man does not require being tazed. He deserves what he got. A good man will report to the court and admit he has a problem with substance abuse and anger and get help. To support bad behavior is crippling the man.

Accountablity and getting in a good program for his above issues is

his only hope. Let's hope the prosecutor and judge do right by this guy and require that he gets appropriate help.

I went to school with this man. That was almost twenty years ago and I didn't particularly trust or like him back then, so this doesn't surprise me at all. I knew his wife as well. Get the help you need Jerry!

Everybody makes mistakes, yes, BUT, that is beyond comprehension! Beating someone in a public place is NOT a mistake!!! This man needs help!!!!!

Sometimes we only see the public side of a person but in private they have an altogether different personality. We read about it & hear about it on TV all the time - the so called "charming" guy that privately beats his wife and or children. We need to pray for all involved.

Dear Victim: We saw each other's first child be born, we were once very close. Take it from me, there is a new life yet to be had, a good one. It's never too late to move on and start over. You will recover and be stronger than ever. Just know that you have lots of support.

Excellent job .. put the bond at such a nominal amount he can get out and possibly do WORSE to this woman. Sorry folks, been there when "a good man snapped".

Oh, and I don't care what she did .. she wasn't the one who held him down (obvious physical force) even after police arrived. Jail time is what he needs, but with such a small bond amount .. it's no wonder he was bailed out.

What is wrong with these people? They act as if they are in the 1920's in the day of beatings and tarring and featherings and lynchings. These people need to fess up to their problems or take them to another place like in the moon in the rocket, maybe that would be a good place for women beaters on the moon, thy could have water and beat on each other! Then we could see who is the tuffist of these so called Men (Cowards),let them beat on their own sex!

I feel sorry for his mother, she has really had it hard in her life, and it still continues to beat her down. Don't they care! I just don't get the ungrateful kids who lack respect. The parents no matter what their age, suffers so much.

First off the "victim" was asked to meet him there through a mutual friend, secondly if you leave a person because of domestic abuse then why meet them? I am not conduning what he did, by no means, but this woman is a manipulater and knew he could snap. She wasn't thinking of his birth children and apparently not of the two of hers she made him adopt. Have you ever been made mad enough to lose control? I have, usually resulted in something being thrown at a wall, but all the same, they both are at fault. busymomandstudent... jerrys mother has been deceased since he was 13, not sure how shes still having a hard life.?

Jerrys mom has been dead since he was 15 not 13... And your right i dont see how she is still having a hard life. Jerry isnt all bad but he has anger issues and the "victim" knew this.
