TWIN FALLS • A Twin Falls man was arrested Friday after police allege he shot arrows into a recliner near where a child was sitting, then attacked the child’s mother.
Twin Falls police responded to a call in the 300 block of Third Avenue East in Twin Falls about a battery. When they arrived, they spoke with a woman who said Adam Newbry, 22, shot several arrows into a chair near where her daughter was sitting. Newbry then allegedly grabbed her by the neck and slammed her against a wall, said the woman — not related to Newbry.
According to the police report, the woman came out of her room to check on her 7-year-old daughter and saw five arrows embedded in a chair about one foot away from another chair where her daughter was sitting.
The woman said she pulled the arrows out of the chair and told Newbry it wasn’t right to shoot arrows in the direction of her child, the police report states.
The report states Newbry then allegedly got up from his chair, grabbed her by the throat, and slammed her against the front door and a wall several times. Police said they saw red marks around the woman’s neck. Another woman at the scene confirmed the story and said she pulled Newbry off the first woman, the report states.
When police spoke to Newbry, he said the woman pulled the arrows out of the chair, then pointed one at him as if she might stab him, the report states. He said he then tried to grab the woman’s shoulders to push her out of the closed front door, the report states. The report noted that Newbry is much larger than the woman.
Police arrested Newbry for simple battery and transported him to the Twin Falls County Jail. A pretrial conference is scheduled for Feb. 26.
