"Take Me To Jail. I Hurt Him Bad This Time"
Richmond County deputies received an instant confession when they arrived to investigate an assault on Watkins Street early Sunday, according to a sheriff's report.
Resident Kelly Bannwarth told them, "Take me to jail. I hurt him bad this time," the report states.
The victim, 48-year-old Benjamin Wharton, told officers that he had been arguing with Ms. Bannwarth when she hit him in the head with a plate. Deputies observed a cut to his right ear and right side of his head.
Mr. Wharton was taken by ambulance to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital. Ms. Bannwarth, 33, was charged with battery and taken to jail.
A report indicates the man and woman are roommates who have had at least six previous complaints.
Maybe they should find a new roommate -- or a good psychiatrist.
