“I met with the victim outside her residence and she informed me there was a physical altercation between her and her husband. I observed blood on her white T-shirt, blood on her face and suffered a laceration to her right lip. She stated the following: she was inside the bedroom and William was outside on the back patio intoxicated. He was sending text messages about their relationship and she became frustrated. She went out back to where he was sitting and picked up his beer on the table. Out of frustration, she dumped the beverage on him and went inside the house, locking the door behind her.”

The police report continues:
“(The wife) stated (William) went around the house checking the door handles for a way to enter their residence. He found an unlocked door to a bedroom and entered the residence. The wife stated she was sitting a chair when he came up to her with a t-shirt and ‘playfully’ placed it around her neck. The wife advised she did not lose consciousness and he did not tighten the shirt around her neck. She removed herself from the situation and headed to her daughter’s bedroom to be away from him. William followed behind her and at some point, in the daughter’s bedroom, he became physical. She stated at some point they ended up on the floor and could not recall exactly how the incident transpired. I asked how William struck her, was it with a closed hand or an open hand she stated she could not remember. It should be noted after the wife found out William was being arrested, she stated she could not recall specific details of the physical altercation. She refused for officers to take photos of her injuries.”
“I went out to the back patio where William was, and he appeared to be asleep on the couch. Officers woke him up and asked him what happened. He told officers that he got into a verbal argument with his wife but at no point did it become physical. William did advise that his wife poured a beer on him, locked him out of the residence, he got up and changed his shirt. I did not observe him in a wet T-Shirt. After he changed his shirt, he told his wife to go to bed. I asked William if it became physical and he he stated no he is not a violent person. I checked his person for injuries and observed a bloody scrape on his left elbow.”
“At this point I went back into the residence and asked the wife to see her daughter’s bedroom where the physical altercation transpired. There was a small amount of blood on the wall but nothin else appeared to be disturbed. When I was inside the bedroom, I heard a disturbance coming from the living room. I exited the bedroom and William began to yell at his wife. I told the wife to go into the other room while officers calmed down William. Officer Leyva was trying to talk to William and tell him to sit down but he was not complying with her multiple commands. William proceeded past Ofc. Leyva toward another room and Ofc. Leyva attempted to place him in handcuffs. William began to pull, tense and brace against officers’ efforts to control him. Officers were able to place William into handcuffs after his multiple attempts to pull away from officers.”
William Lamson was charged with battery and resisting an officer. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on his own recognizance.
