Ida Shadwick, of Downs Apartments, on Commerce Street, said her 44-year-old husband, Michael, punched her. Officers were called and found Ida with a busted and bleeding lip.
“Mrs. Shadwick stated that he had been drinking and was drunk or that he was mad that she had to get up and go to work at 3 a.m.,” Officer Lebron Jackson reported. “[I] made contact with Mr. Shadwick who was intoxicated sitting on the couch in the living room. [I] placed Mr. Shadwick under arrest. At that point, he became verbally abusive toward [me] and also on the way to the jail.”
Shadwick was arrested for criminal trespassing and battery under the Family Violence Act (FVA), according to jail reports.
