MOULTRIE, Ga. — A Moultrie man described the woman who threw a candle at him and struck him repeatedly with a picture frame as his soon-to-be ex-girlfriend at the time police arrested her on Tuesday.
Police responded at about 5:26 p.m. to a report of a fight at the residence of Kyle Folds in the 2800 block of Fifth Street Southeast.
Folds told police that he and Eve Starr Holton argued. During the argument, he reported, a candle in a glass container was thrown at him and he was hit with a picture frame until it broke on his upper arm.
Folds had redness on his shoulder and small cuts on his left forearm, police said. Police also observed broken glass on the porch of the residence.
When questioned by police, Holton gave the same account as Folds -- that she threw the candle and hit him with the picture frame.
Police took Holton, 46, 999 Lovers Lane, Leesburg, into custody and charged her with simple battery.
