An Auburn man was arrested after an intoxicated declaration of love led to a domestic disturbance.
Raymond Allen Barrett, age 48 of 21 Ninth Street in Auburn was dancing with a female at a private residence when the woman said that she would always love her deceased husband.
Barrett replied that her husband was dead, but “I am here now.”
The woman became upset at Barrett’s remark and the two began arguing. During the course of the argument, the woman was pulled out the door by Barrett and both landed on the front stoop.
A neighbor who witnessed the incident said it looked as if Barrett and the woman “were making out or making up.”
Barrett claimed the woman pushed him down causing him to hit his head on the front stoop.
After talking to both parties and two witnesses, police determined that Barrett and the woman were intoxicated and that Barrett had stumbled. According to the police report, Barrett had grabbed the woman in attempt to break his fall, pulled her down on top of him and injured himself in the process.
Due to insufficient probable cause and conflicting statements, neither party was charged with an act of domestic violence. However, during the course of the investigation, police learned that Barrett had an outstanding warrant.
Barrett was arrested for probation violation and transported to the Barrow County Detention Center.
Other arrests made by Auburn Police this past week include:
• Judith Cheryl Carter, 43, 155 Quail Valley Apt. A, Auburn, failure to appear.
