The Madison County Sheriff’s Office reported the following incidents:
FIGHT: On Oct. 18, Cpl. Josh Fowler was dispatched to a home on the outskirts of Comer, where a 53-year-old man was fighting his nephew. The man explained he gave a debit card and credit card to his nephew telling him to buy some items for the nephew’s family. However, when the man checked his account he found the nephew purchased $2,800 worth of items, which caused the uncle to become irate. The man grabbed his nephew and pushed him against a wall, but the nephew punched his uncle in the face knocking him to the ground. The nephew then left the house. The deputy explained to the uncle that because he allowed the nephew to use the cards, he would have to take him to civil court.
