Alcohol May Have Been Involved


  The Laurens County Sheriff’s office was dispatched to Lisbon Road, Mountville at 8:16 last night on a report of an assault involving a gun and knives. A man told one deputy that the female at the residence was drunk and that she scratched him on his chest. He indicated they had both become physically aggressive with each other. He said she got knives and he got his gun, then she left the house. He said that she rammed his carport and his truck and fled the scene, only to return a short time later and sit at the end of the driveway in her vehicle.  He confirmed he had fired his gun, but only into the air, not at the woman. The woman complained she was afraid of him and got the knives to protect herself. She contacted a friend who came and picked her up. No charges were filed in the case.
