▲ GUS DENMARK LANE — Complainant said she and her husband drank a few beers in their barn and she then fell asleep in a rocking chair in the barn. Soon after, she said she was awakened by a man in all black clothing who shook her and threw her to the ground and tried to drag her out of the barn. She said she picked up a beer bottle, broke it and threatened the man with it. She said the next thing she remembers is waking up with her eye swollen shut and bleeding. The husband said he was getting ready for bed when he received a text from his wife to come to the barn, where he found her with her injured eye. Upon interviewing the complainant, her story changed multiple times and no evidence beyond a broken beer bottle could be found in the barn. The complainant refused to go with EMS to the hospital and could not name a possible offender.
