Sulphur Springs Police Officers were called to an apartment on Helm Lane Wednesday morning around 2 a.m. in reference to an individual trying to kick in a door. When officers arrived, they heard a female making loud noise as though in pain and a male yelling.
Visible injuries on the female and telling officers that the male was beating her led to the arrest of Tom Coy Childress, 33, who lived at the address. Childress is in Hopkins County Jail charged with Assault Family Violence Imped/Breath, a felony 3. His bond is set at $25,000.
