Lumpkin County man arrested for battery, criminal trespass


LUMPKIN COUNTY, Ga. – A 24-year-old Lumpkin County man was arrested on charges of simple battery-family violence and criminal trespass last week.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call on Thursday (May 28) where, according to the incident report, Joanne Rider said her son, Tyler Holloway, chased her through the house and punched her before punching through a window and cutting his arm.

Holloway’s grandfather said he was asleep when he heard screaming and awoke to see Holloway fighting with his mother before he called 911. According to the report there was no visible sign of injury to Joanne Rider and she later changed her story to say her son did not hit her.

Holloway was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center for medical treatment then to the Lumpkin County Detention Center.
