24-year-old Spencer Graves was involved in a domestic altercation with his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, Trina Woodard, at a Beals Lane residence on June 20th. Officers were dispatched to a Shell Gas Station near Whitescreek Pike and, upon arrival, spoke with Woodard. She told officers that she went to Graves’ Mothers’ Beals Lane residence to pick up their child earlier in the day. Graves was not there when she initially showed up but showed up later. Woodard claims that her friend, Whysper West, was waiting in her car but then came into the house. Graves became upset that Woodard brought someone else to his mother’s house, causing an argument. Woodard then grabbed her child and brought him to the car, putting him in the car seat. Woodard stated that while this was happening, Graves approached her and pushed the side of her face. Woodard then ignored it and tried to get in the vehicle, but Graves grabbed the door as she tried to close it. She stated that Graves then grabbed her shirt and began pushing her, causing a scratch on her chest that officers observed. Officers also observed blood on her finger that was caused by her pushing Graves away from her. Officers then spoke with West, a witness, who stated that she saw Graves push Woodard in the face. Officers then attempted to contact Graves at his mother’s residence but first spoke with his mother, Sequoya Cummings, who provided officers with a short clip of the incident from a security camera. The clip showed Woodard getting into her vehicle and Graves walking up to the door and grabbing it, preventing it from closing. The video also shows Graves and Woodard grabbing each other but cutting out shortly after. The officers then spoke with Graves, who stated that there was never any physical altercation, but due to the evidence of injury and the witness statement, officers determined Graves to be the primary aggressor, and he was taken into custody for domestic assault.
