A verbal altercation between the parents of two girls escalated last week when the parties met in front of the Austin Post Office.
Jessica Sheppard, 32, and Damon Tompkins, 35, both of Delta, say they were leaving the bus stop with their three children in their vehicle Friday afternoon when Brandon Norvell, 22, and his mother Tracy, 46, both of Delta, accosted them.
Jessica alleges Tracy began slamming her door into the driver's side passenger door of her vehicle. As her husband exited the vehicle saying, "Get out of here and go on home," Tracy Norvell allegedly told her son to "hit it." He put his vehicle in drive, striking Brandon and damaging both vehicles. According to the Delta County Sheriff's Office, Tompkins was not seriously injured, although he was treated by an EMT.
Due to conflicting stories, the sheriff's investigator has forwarded his report to the district attorney's office for consideration of charges. No arrests have been made.blog comments powered by Disqus
