Saturday Night, Mississippi State Representative Douglas McLeod punched his wife in the face blooding her nose because she didn’t undress quickly enough when he wanted to have sex.
When the George County Sheriff’s Department arrived they found the 58 year old Republican lawmaker intoxicated and holding a glass of alcohol in his hand when deputies responded to the McLeod Mississippi home shortly before 9 p.m. on Saturday.
Deputies found blood on the couple’s bed and on the floor in the same room.
When a deputies arrived, the report said, McLeod opened the door and they told him that they were there because a domestic assault had been reported. “Are you kidding me?” the lawmaker asked.
When deputies went inside, they saw two women standing at the top of a stairwell, both of whom the deputies described as frightened. McLeod’s wife eventually came outside after deputies assured her they would keep her away from her husband.
The deputy said McLeod’s wife was shaking and upset.
McLeod’s wife said her husband was drunk and “just snapped,” as he often does when under the influence of alcohol, the report said.
Another woman who was there said McLeod’s wife came running up to her room, her face bloodied. The woman shut the door and locked it with McLeod’s wife inside.
The other woman said McLeod started banging on the door and telling the women to open it. He told the other woman if she didn’t open the door, he’d “kill her (expletive) dog.”
McLeod’s wife did not want go to the hospital by ambulance, but assured authorities she’d have her daughter take her to get checked so authorities would have a report of the injuries.
McLeod was taken into custody on a charge of misdemeanor domestic violence and booked in the George County jail by early Sunday morning. He is out of jail on a $1,000 signature bond.
