Police were called to 1674 Lee’s Chapel Rd., where a fight between Pennie Lane Alred, 31, and her stepfather, 49-year-old Jerry Blackwood.
Sgt. Perry Davis arrived on the scene and spoke with Blackwood. He claimed that he returned home July 24 and found Alred outside his house, talking on a telephone.
Upon seeing Alred, Blackwood reportedly ordered Alred to leave the residence. The woman then threw her telephone into the pickup truck, striking Blackwood across the head and drawing blood.
Davis noted that, upon examination, Blackwood had a large knot on his face, just below the right eye.
Following the incident, Alred left the residence. Sgt. Jon Jones soon found her outside a Friendly Baptist Church Rd. address. She was then arrested and taken to the Polk County Jail.
Alred was charged with battery under the Family Violence Act.
