MOULTRIE — A Moultrie woman’s demand for the return for a pair of shoes from her ex-boyfriend was the reported cause of the argument that led to him being injured and a trip to jail for her.

Jermaya L. Richardson, 28, 1315 First Ave. N.W., was charged Sunday with battery after police investigated a disturbance in the 100 block of Fifth Street Southwest.

Darryl Dawson, 28, told police that Richardson wanted the pair of shoes back because they had broken up and that they started arguing at his residence. He said that she pushed, bit and scratched him and that she also pulled his hair, then left when he said he was calling police.

Dawson had scratches to the left cheek, behind his left ear and was bleeding from the right thumb, police said. Jacori Williams reported that when he and Dawson arrived at the residence Richardson was on the front porch steps and he went inside while they argued outside.

At one time when he went to the door, Williams told police, he saw Richardson pulling Dawson’s hair and went outside to break them up. As Dawson was trying to pick up belongings he had dropped Richardson started punching, biting and “pulling on” Dawson, Williams said.

When questioned later by an officer, Richardson told police that she pushed and bit Dawson and pulled his hair because he pushed her first, causing her to defend herself.
