According to the Walker County Sheriff’s Office:
Chad Andrew Smith, 18, of Katie Lane was arrested Feb. 20, following a domestic disturbance from the previous night.
Smith reportedly attacked a female while she was on the phone with another person. Smith took her phone, which led to a fight and then a chase in which he pulled out a gun, according to the victim’s statement.
The female ran away from the situation, avoiding further confrontation.
The volatile relationship has had previous domestic disturbance calls to authorities.
On Nov. 12, Smith and the same female were involved in an argument that led to a struggle. Smith allegedly struck the female, leaving marks and bruises.
Earlier that same month, on Nov. 2, investigators were called to an altercation between Smith and the female. Following that physical confrontation, Smith stole the vehicle that the woman had been borrowing from a friend.
Smith faces numerous charges from the incidents, including aggravated assault, theft, willful obstruction of law enforcement, failure to appear, two counts of simple battery, and criminal trespassing. He has been released on $9,711 bond.
