Wife charged with battery

DACULA - A discussion about divorce turned violent last week when a Dacula woman was arrested, accused of punching her husband.

Lori Jean Little, 29, was charged with battery when her husband called the police following an argument. Her 32-year-old husband said they were in bed talking about getting divorced when she jumped on him and punched him in the mouth. She also allegedly scratched his arm, a police report said.

Lori Little accused her husband of attacking her first. But he told police she had started scratching her own face when she found out he was calling the police. The officer wrote in his report that there was a small scratch but said there was no evidence suggesting she was the victim.

Police report man shot in arm while bargaining with prostitute

TUCKER - A man was shot in the arm Sunday while bargaining with a prostitute at Westwood Apartments on South Norcross Tucker Road, according to a police report.

The victim told police that seven Hispanic men came into an apartment and demanded his money before shooting him. The man was "extremely reluctant" to talk about what he was doing in the apartment. However, his friend admitted they had gone there to solicit sex from two women, the report said.

The friend told police he struck a deal with one of the prostitutes and went with her to a back room. About 10 minutes later, the friend said a man came in and told the woman to put her clothes on because police were on the way. The friend exited the room and discovered that the victim had been shot. The victim was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center for treatment.
