Couple reportedly hit by car after leaving party

MOULTRIE — A Friday night party on Roundtree Bridge Road spawned two reports of people struck by automobiles and an assault.

Audie McMurphy Jr. and Mary Brock were taken to Colquitt Regional Medical Center after they reported being struck while walking along the roadway, Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office reports said.

Officers were dispatched at 11:27 p.m.  to the 900 block of Roundtree Bridge Road, where the party took place.

Brock told officers that she and McMurphy had been at the party. While walking she was hit by a vehicle and McMurphy was struck by two vehicles, she reported.

She had scratches on her elbow and McMurphy was face down on the pavement when officers arrived.

Sarah Crosby, at whose home the party was held, reported that Brock and McMurphy came to the party with Juan Hernandez and that McMurphy began walking when he was ready to leave and Hernandez was not. Hernandez went looking for Brock and McMurphy in his van and hit a log in her yard when he returned, she reported.

Hernandez, who had what appeared to be a broken nose, said he was assaulted by several people at the party. He refused medical treatment, sheriff’s reports said.

Witnesses said they heard a driver hit the brakes and then hit something.

A hospital spokeswoman said that Brock was treated and released. She said there was no record of McMurphy being treated.

In other assaults:

• An officer dispatched to a fight at 11:43 p.m. Saturday found Carols Hernandez-Santiago of the 600 block of Circle Road on the ground with cuts and bruises to the face.

Everyone in the area was intoxicated, making it impossible to determine the circumstances of the incident, sheriff’s reports said.

Moultrie Police Department

• Keisha Davis, Moultrie, reported Sunday that a female relative hit her in the face and ripped her shirt during an incident in the 1500 block of Fourth Avenue Northeast.

• Police charged Blake Samples, 33, 1409 11th St. S.W., Sunday with battery and obstructing an emergency call after CRMC reported a woman coming in with injuries suffered in an assault.

Kayla Samples, who told police that she is separated from Blake Samples, said that she told him to leave when he came to her residence while intoxicated. She reported that he pulled her down by the hair, threw her down on concrete and hit her several times.

Samples told police that he also took her cell phone so she could not call for help.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
