Domestic Violence Arrest

Police have arrested a Kirksville woman for assaulting her uncle with a tire iron. Court documents indicate 29-year old Tabitha Sanders hit a man several times and began chasing him around the yard. Stories differ as to who swung first, but authorities say Sanders showed up as her uncle was unloading furniture Friday night and came at him with the tire iron. When Sanders began chasing him, police say the man grabbed a garden hoe as an attempt to keep her back. He fell and Sanders threw the tire iron and left, according to officers. She’s jailed on a $25,000 cash only bond.
