Charles Cory Williams was arrested early Sunday morning after reportedly getting in a fight with his wife’s boyfriend.
According to reports from the Covington Police Department, officers responded to a fight on Adams Street, but on the way there they received a call from dispatch that one of the people involved had fled the scene in a small red truck. Officers stopped the truck on Emory Street, and as they made there way to it to speak with the driver and passenger (Williams), they saw Williams open his door and vomit outside of the vehicle.
Officers approached and asked Williams if he was all right, and he reportedly answered “I’m just sick.” However, officers noted in their reports that they could smell alcohol coming from Williams’ breath and person, he was covered in his own vomit, he wasn’t wearing shoes and his socks were wet and muddy and his elbow was scratched and bloody. He reportedly told the officers the injuries occurred while he was “involved in an argument with his wife’s boyfriend.”
The officers spoke with the driver of the vehicle, Williams’ mother, who said that her son and his wife were in the process of divorcing and that Williams had caught his wife cheating with two other men.
She admitted to picking her son up from his wife’s home after he got into a fight with her current boyfriend, and that he had been drinking alcohol prior to driving to his wife’s home.
After speaking with Williams’ wife, officers allegedly learned that there were witnesses to a fight in the yard of the home. The wife told police that shortly after she arrived home that night, Williams began knocking on her door and yelling and cursing at her. She opened the door and attempted to calm him, but he entered the home and started fighting with her boyfriend.
Williams was arrested and transported to the Newton County Detention Center where he was charged with disorderly conduct.
