STORY/ARTICLE VIA DAILYMAIL-“A #Mississippi lawmaker has been arrested after he allegedly punched his wife in the face because she didn't undress quickly enough when he wanted to have sex. Republican state Rep. Douglas McLeod of #Lucedale , 58, was arrested on Saturday on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
McLeod, who has represented George and Stone counties since 2012, is running unopposed for re-election this year.
According to the report, McLeod punched his wife in the face, leaving her with a bloody nose. He was intoxicated and holding a glass of alcohol when deputies arrived to his home before 9pm Saturday to take him in, according to an investigative report filed with the George County Sheriff’s Department as per the Sun Herald.
When deputies arrived to his home, McLeod opened the door and said, 'Are you kidding me?' 'Mr. McLeod had slurred speech and walked slow in a zigzag pattern,' deputies reported. He was so drunk he needed to grab a hand rail to maintain his balance.
Deputies found blood on the couple's bed and on the floor in the same room.
His wife was found at the top of a stairwell in the home with another woman and appeared frightened, shaking and upset. His wife said McLeod was drunk when he 'just snapped' and hit her.
The wife told another woman who was in the house at the time.
Shocked to see McLeod's wife with blood on her face, the pair locked themselves in a room.
McLeod then started banging on the door telling the women to open it. He threatened the other woman saying if she didn't open the door, he'd 'kill her f***ing dog'. McLeod was taken into custody and booked into George county jail by early Sunday morning but was released out of jail on $1,000 signature bond.” 😮 source: (via @dailymail ) #news #man #husband #wife #following #followforfollowback #followbackinstantly - 41 minutes ago
