A 53-year-old local man was jailed twice on Christmas Day, according to Summerville Police reports.
The first incident happened at 2:06 p.m. when cops were called to the residence of Sherman Marion Rutledge, of 676 Highland Avenue.
“[Rutledge] in a dispute with wife, [he] did push female and broke her phone during the altercation,” Officer Roy L. Williams stated.
Rutledge was arrested for disorderly conduct. Since the charge is a misdemeanor, he was promptly released after being booked into jail.
Not too long after being released, Rutledge was allegedly back at the residence creating problems. Cops returned at 5:15 p.m. and found Rutledge verbally arguing with his daughter outside the house. The daughter told cops she had been pushed also.
“Two witnesses advised they saw him push her,” Officer Matthew Wilson reported. “He was very irate and had got into a physical altercation with three juvenile boys.”
Rutledge was then arrested for a second time for disorderly conduct, according to a report.
