An East 10th Avenue man was charged Monday with aggravated domestic assault after allegedly almost hitting his wife with shears, police reported.
Alan C. Gambrell, 43, 108 E. 10th Ave., was arrested after police investigated a domestic disturbance at his residence.
According to a police report, Suzanna Gambrell, 44, told police about 4:45 p.m. Monday that she and her husband had been arguing about an earlier disturbance between her husband and daughter that also brought police to the residence.
When Mrs. Gambrell confronted her husband about the earlier incident, the argument started and she threatened to call police. He grabbed her phone and twisted it apart, she told police.
When she tried to leave, her husband grabbed a pair of shears and threatened to "smash her car all to hell. Mrs. Gambrell was standing at the driver's door when her husband swung over her shoulder and hit the car's roof with the shears, barely missing her, she told police.
A witness arrived, saw Gambrell with the shears and called police, according to the report.
Police saw that the roof of Mrs. Gambrell's car had a dent from a blunt object, according to the report.
Gambrell was arrested and jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $10,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance Aug. 8.
