Woman Reportedly Returns from Charity Walk to Domestic Violence

 The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office responded code 3 to a Gray Court area residence at 1:20 Sunday morning on a report of a domestic assault in progress. A 911 dispatcher reported hearing a woman screaming for the man to stop hitting her. Deputy Devin Hodges reported arriving to find the victim standing on the front porch near the steps and the man standing behind her yelling. The woman reportedly indicated she returned home from a charity walk to find her boyfriend of two years had been drinking. She reportedly confronted him about inappropriate texting between him and another woman and the fight allegedly began afterward. Deputies arrested 35-year-old Jamie Michael Bragg of 451 Carousel Road, Gray Court and charged him with Criminal Domestic Violence. He’s accused of hitting the girlfriend about her face and head, causing swelling to her right eye. Jamie Bragg remained in the Johnson Detention Center, pending arraignment on the charge today.
