Man charged with domestic violence, DUI

Friday, February 6, 2009

Drinking, driving, and quarreling with his wife got a Lewisburg man in trouble with police in last month.

Lynn Ewing of 509 Hill Street called the Lewisburg Police Department just after midnight on Wednesday, Jan. 21, to report that a dark-colored SUV had run through her yard, striking her house.

Officers Jackie Sands and Seth Feinson found Christefor Fears, 32, of 732 Hill Street, attempting to drive out of Ewing's yard, but his 1991 Chevy Suburban was stuck.

According to Sands' report, Fears was in "an intoxicated state," and "performed poorly" on field sobriety tests.

Fears admitted to Feinson that he had been arguing with his wife, Dechantal Fears, and the confrontation escalated until dishes were thrown and Dechantal was struck in the head. She then left the residence, and Christefor set off in the car to look for her, driving into Ewing's yard.

Fears "did state that he had consumed three beers and two shots of whiskey," wrote Sands in his report.

He was arrested and charged with driving under the influence (second offence), violation of the implied consent law, and domestic assault. His bond was set at $3,000 and court date is Feb. 9.

Also charged with domestic assault was Alvin Presley, 69, of Freeman Drive, who is alleged to have argued with and hit his wife, Carol Ann Presley, on Saturday, Jan. 24.
