Although information is limited to protect the ongoing investigation, Brazil City Police Department was able to provide some details about the incident. However, the victim's name is being withheld at this time.
Police Chief Dave Archer told The Brazil Times William C. Stone, 27, resisted arrest when Patrolman Jeremy Mace attempted to take him into custody.
He was booked into the Clay County Justice Center on preliminary charges of domestic battery, aggravated battery, strangulation, criminal confinement, possession of paraphernalia and possession of marijuana under 30 grams.
The unidentified victim was taken to St. Vincent Clay Hospital for treatment of the undisclosed injury, and later released. No other injuries were reported during the incident.
According to paperwork on file at the Clay County Courthouse, Stone also faces pending allegations in Clay Superior Court from two separate incidents in the past two months.
On March 22, he was formally charged with class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana and a class B misdemeanor battery.
On Feb. 12, he was formally charged with three class C misdemeanor charges, including operating a vehicle while intoxicated, operating a motor vehicle without ever receiving a license and operating a vehicle with a schedule I or II controlled substance or its metabolite in the body.
When Stone failed to appear for court proceedings March 9, a warrant was issued for his arrest. Officials confirmed the warrant would be served to Stone while incarcerated on a $25,000 cash bond (with no 10 percent allowed).
Further details are not being officially released due to the pending investigation.
