A night of disputes reportedly led to the arrest of a Laurens woman. Laurens City Police responded to Park Street at 4:34 yesterday morning after a call from her husband. Officer Patrick Craven talked with the husband and wife and another person who reportedly witnessed events. It seems the husband had accused the wife of taking his liquor and hiding it in the woods. That argument eventually calmed down and they went to sleep. The wife later reportedly woke up and accused the husband of stealing her pills. Both went back to sleep, but the wife woke again and this time allegedly pushed her husband in the chest with a crutch, and allegedly scratched his face with her fingernails.
After investigating the situation, Officer Craven arrested 54-year-old Deborah Elaine Deyton of 114 Park Street, Laurens, issuing a ticket charging her with Criminal Domestic Violence. Later in the day, a Surety bond was set at $2,150. Ms. Deyton remained in the Johnson Detention Center this morning.
