Kirsten Carter says her boyfriend, 33-year-old Brandon Glass, began to bite her after they went to bed on July 3rd, in an attempt to initiate sex after the couple had been drinking all evening. She told him to stop biting her, and hit him. She says he then pulled her hair, and everything went black. Carter says the next thing she remembers is waking up naked on July 4th with bite marks all over her body, bruises on her legs, back, and torso, two black eyes, and a busted lip. Additionally, she had red marks on both sides of her neck/throat and it appears as if her air and blood flow had been restricted for a period of time. When first responders arrived, she was still seeing spots and flashes of light, and had a raspy voice and a hard time swallowing. She was transported to a local hospital for treatment and Brandon Glass was charged with felony aggravated assault/strangulation.
Tim Basford says he was sleeping when his girlfriend, 40-year-old Heather Rose Brinn, entered their shared bedroom and struck him in the head with a blunt object. She was yelling about Facebook posts and throwing objects around the room. She then took his work phone and attempted to run out of the house with it, however, he grabbed her by the arm to prevent her from destroying it, stating she has a history of destroying his belonging. Officers say Brinn’s version of events changed each time she recounted it, and that she has a history of domestic violence incidents. She was charged with domestic assault with bodily injury and is free on a $2,500 bond.
