Rome man turns himself in after domestic disputes


A 22-year-old Rome man turned himself in to Rome City Court on Tuesday for two separate domestic disputes earlier this year, according to the Rome Police Department.

Police said Dontrell A. Wright, of Kent Street, started yelling at the mother of his child while she was pushing the stroller towards their home around 4:30 p.m. June 28.

Police said Wright punched the woman in the head and she turned and ran away.

Wright gave chase, and police said he snatched the woman’s cell phone out of her back pocket and threw the phone to the ground, breaking it. Police said Wright then punched the woman in the back of the head and left the area.

On July 7, around 8:30 a.m., police said Wright got into another domestic dispute with the same woman. Police said Wright punched her in the face, breaking her eyeglasses, while their one-month-old child was in the room. Police said Wright then grabbed the woman’s cell phone and left the area.

Evidence from both cases was turned over to Rome City Court and a criminal summons was issued.

Police said Wright answered the summons on Tuesday for one count each of third-degree assault, second-degree harassment, third-degree trespass, fourth-degree mischief, petty larceny and endangering the welfare of a child.

He is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
