A Lowndes county man was left fighting for his life Sunday evening after he suffered multiple cuts to his head during a fight with his girlfriend on Read Drive in East Columbus.
Lowndes County Sheriff’s Deputies and Baptist paramedics raced to 392 Read Drive Sunday around 1:30 p.m. after calls came in that a man had “shown up in our carport bleeding from the head.”
Deputies arrived on scene to find 21-year old Christopher J. Williams laying in a large pool of blood in the carport, suffering from a severe cut to his head.Williams told deputies simply that he had been attacked, but would not tell them who assaulted him. Paramedics from Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle arrived on scene within seconds and immediately began working on the victim to stop the bleeding.
While the EMT’s tended to Williams, deputies began to question four adults who were inside the home. Those present initially told deputies that Williams had “just turned up here in the carport” when questioned. Upon a cursory search of the home, deputies discovered that the kitchen floor was wet, having seemingly just been mopped. Upon further investigation, deputies discovered a T-shirt and a broken flower vase in the kitchen trash can, both stained with blood.
After a brief interrogation, deputies detained Monica Bonner and charged her with aggravated domestic violence. (It can be safely assumed that Bonner is alleged to have struck Williams with said vase during some sort of altercation-CK)
Deandre Bonner, who was an apparent witness to the incident, was arrested on outstanding warrants from the Mississippi Department of Corrections. While being escorted to a patrol car, Deandre Bonner smiled and joked with deputies, saying “Maaaan, I’ve been in jail my whole life! Ya’ll try and get me! This ain’t nuttin! Ya’ll better check me good.”
“Time to go now, son” a deputy replied.
“Whatever, peace ouuuuut!” Bonner said in closing.
Williams was rushed to BMH-GT with several wounds to his face and head. Paramedics were unable to stop the bleeding on scene, but were able to suture the wounds at the hospital and Williams was released early Monday.
