S.C. Officer Attacked During Domestic Dispute

January 02, 2014  | 

A Rock Hill, S.C., man involved in a domestic dispute with his mother came to blows with a police officer on Wednesday, punching the policeman in the mouth, scratching his face, digging his fingernails into his skin and wrestling with him on the ground before he was cuffed and taken to jail with a bloody lip and swollen face, authorities told the Rock Hill Herald.

Police were sent to a South Dave Lyle Boulevard home at about 1 a.m. for a call about a domestic issue between a mother and son, according to a Rock Hill police report. When officers arrived, they met with the mother of Anthony Lamont Adkins, 38, who tried telling police what happened between her and her son.

Adkins kept interfering, police reported, preventing officers from speaking with his mother. He grabbed his mother’s arm and began pulling her away from the officer even after the officer asked Adkins to let his mother go. The policeman grabbed Adkins’ arm. That’s when Adkins stepped back and punched the officer in his mouth, grabbed the policeman’s shirt and pulled his microphone off.
