* Nathan Dean Health, 29, 206 Jenkins Hollow
Road, was arrested Saturday by Carter County Sheriff's Department
Deputy Shannon Deloach after the officer responded to a domestic
disturbance on Jenkins Hollow Road. The victim, identified
as Wilhemina Linberg, said she and her husband, Heath, had
been sanding floors at the residence when Heath suggested
they "take a break" and go to a bar. When she told him she
did not want to go, he said he would go regardless. Linberg
said she put the keys in her pants pocket and told him she
did not want him to drink and drive. Heath then held her down
on the living room couch and took the keys from her. Linberg
suffered two red and bruising scratches on her forearm --
one 4 inches long, the other about 5 inches. Linberg's pants
also were torn over halfway down along her left leg. She told
the officer that Heath has become more abusive to her in the
last few months and that this had coincided with an increase
in his drinking. According to the report, Linberg told Heath
she didn't want him to drink anymore because of this. He then
poured a beer over her head, saying: "I don't want anymore
beer to drink; you have it." He then took another beer and
after taking a few drinks, poured the remainder over her body
and continued to verbally abuse her. He was arrested and charged
with assault under domestic violence.
