Jefferson County sheriff
Changes: A Parkersburg, W.Va., woman visiting her ex-boyfriend in Tiltonsville said he hit, kicked and threw her to the ground during an argument, Wednesday. She said they spent several days together without problems but they had an argument over money that escalated into violence. She said he punched her in the back of her head, causing her to hear what she described as a “tuning fork” sound and claimed she “saw stars.” She said he threw her to the ground and kicked her, then warned deputies when they talked to her ex he would tell them she’d hit him first. Deputies said she had no marks or bruises and told them she was OK, but she wanted to press charges. While he admitted money was a problem, the male told deputies the female wanted to have sex but he wasn’t interested because he is transitioning hormonally to become a woman. He said as the argument escalated, there was “some shoving back and forth” though he denied punching and kicking her.
A real gem: Deputies had to respond to a Bloomingdale residence because a neighbor with whom the homeowner has had ongoing problems drove his tractor over a surveyor’s post, Tuesday, uprooting it. The homeowners were advised to get a protection order, but they told deputies the magistrate already told them they’d have to sue their neighbor because a protection order can’t be issued for a property dispute. The neighbor’s wife told them there’s already a court case going on and they have an attorney handling it. Her husband told them he was “sick of the sheriff’s office and sick of his neighbors” and told deputies they needed to “get the (expletive) out of here” and nothing was going on. Deputies took pictures of the uprooted post.
Stay away: A Toronto woman told deputies several items of value have disappeared from her home during the past several months, including 24 silver dollars, a $100 bill and a set of hoop earrings, Monday. She said there’s never any sign of forced entry and suspects it may be a family member.

Rowdy: A Steubenville man police said was in a lethargic state and allegedly admitted he’d been drinking was booked into the county jail Tuesday after he shredded a citation, then got belligerent with a family member who came to give him a ride home.
