When the deputy arrived at the residence there were no vehicles in the driveway. The front door was open and as he began to approach the house, the female came outside. The female told the deputy her ex-husband of 10 years showed up at the residence uninvited, came into the house and started yelling at her. Female said about one month ago she was talking with her ex and found out he needed a place to store his wrecked car and she offered to store it in her driveway for a short time.

Female stated she asked numerous times for the male to get out of the house but he continued to verbally abuse her. The male was going through the female’s personal property and grabbed her keys. Stating she was unsure of the male would do next she grabbed a gun and demanded he get out of the house. The male’s verbal tirade continued and the female followed him out of the house.

The female then saw the male either throw her keys into the front yard or act like he was throwing them. Male got into a vehicle and left. The female and deputy searched the area and were unable to find the keys. Contact was made with the male who refused to return to the property; he did agree to meet the deputy on station. The male called back a few minutes later to dispatch and said he had a flat tire and would not be responding to the station. Deputy made numerous attempts to call the male back with no answer. A message couldn’t be left due to the voicemail being full.
