MOULTRIE — A Moultrie woman accused of biting her adult son was arrested Tuesday afternoon after a confrontation with a Colquitt County sheriff’s deputy.

Vendetta A. Weaver, 66, of 3426 Doerun-Norman Park Road, was charged with battery (family violence) and obstruction.

The deputy’s report said he was called to Weaver’s residence at 3:06 p.m. Tuesday after she allegedly threw water on and bit her 41-year-old son. Weaver had left the residence before the deputy arrived, but he spotted and pulled over her Honda Prelude on Sumner Road.

The report said the deputy told the woman he had pulled her over in relation to the incident with her son. Weaver told the deputy to follow her to the vehicle, but the deputy kept her from entering the vehicle because he thought she might try to flee the scene.

The deputy told Weaver she would not be able to leave until she gave him information about the incident, reports said. The deputy grabbed her arm and escorted her to the front of the patrol car, and the report said she was very uncooperative with the deputy.

Reports said the deputy pried Weaver’s car keys from her hand in order to prevent her from attempting to drive away from the scene. After he did so, the report said, Weaver punched the deputy once in the face, and the deputy hit her back in the face with an open hand and placed her under arrest.

The deputy requested the son, Ladon Weaver, come to the scene of the traffic stop, and reports said he came to the scene to provide information. Ladon Weaver’s arm was red from where Vendetta Weaver allegedly bit him.

Vendetta Weaver was taken to Colquitt County Jail and booked in on the charges against her, reports said. The Prelude was towed from the scene of the traffic stop, and the deputy’s on-board video camera tape was turned over to sheriff’s investigators.
