Man charged in Brooklet attack
Police: Suspect attacked ex-wife, male companion
Eric Dean Davidson

Bulloch County Sheriff’s deputies, serving a warrant issued by the Brooklet Police Department, arrested a man Wednesday who is charged with battery and terroristic threats and acts.

Brooklet Police Chief Clifford “Max” Meyer said Eric Dean Davidson, 45, Lanier Road, Pembroke, stopped a vehicle April 21 around 1:30 p.m. at the intersection of North Cromley and West Lane Streets in Brooklet, blocking the vehicle’s path and attacking a man driving the other vehicle.

Then, he physically assaulted his ex-wife, who was in the vehicle, Meyer said. Davidson did not use a weapon but used his fists to strike the victims, both whom suffered visible injuries and bruising, he said.

When the woman said she was calling 911, Davidson fled. He was located at his home around 1 p.m. Wednesday by Bulloch County Sheriff’s Deputy Wayman M. Lester, according to sheriff’s incident reports, on two battery warrants and one warrant for terroristic threats and acts.

Davidson was booked into the Bulloch County Jail and awaits further court action, according to jail records.
