A local man has been charged with domestic assault and resisting arrest for an altercation that allegedly involved his 78-year-old grandmother.
Brandon Redmon, 40, faces the charges for an incident on the Fourth of July where he reportedly broke a chair, terrified his grandmother, and then fought with officers. His bond was set at $90,000.
According to the warrant for his arrest, McMinnville police officer Justin Colwell responded to a home on Union Hill Road around 8 a.m. on July 4 to answer a call of a verbal dispute. Upon arrival, officer Colwell observed a broken chair in the kitchen and was advised by the grandmother that Redmon had broken the chair during an argument.
“Officer Colwell located Brandon in the den and Brandon appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance,” the arrest warrant states. “Officer Colwell conducted a pat down of Brandon and asked for Brandon’s side of the story. Brandon then told officer Colwell that he would not be arrested in an aggressive tone.”
Due to the nature of the call, the broken chair, and Brandon’s perceived impairment and aggressiveness, officer Colwell advised him that he would be detained in handcuffs until the investigation was complete.
“Brandon resisted after being commanded several times to put his hands behind his back,” the arrest warrant states. “Brandon was taken to the ground where he continued to resist officer Colwell and assisting officers.”
According to the arrest warrant, the grandmother said she was, “in fear for her life during the argument and when he broke the kitchen chair.”
Redmon made his first court appearance last week and is next scheduled to be in court again Aug. 10.
