UPDATE: Couple Arrested After Domestic Violence Incident Escalates To Shooting

LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. – A couple was arrested after a physical altercation escalated to one person being shot in the foot Tuesday.

Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely says his office responded to a shooting on Slate Rd in Elkmont.  The caller, Mark Scott, was shot in the foot by his girlfriend, Tina Scott, Blakely said.

The couple were riding together in a pickup truck to Ardmore when the couple got into a verbal fight. Blakely said Mark Scott attempted to get out of the truck while it was still in motion, causing Tina Scott to stop the truck at the intersection of New Garden Rd and Slate Rd.  Mark Scott took her purse, which contained $5700 from inside the cab and a bicycle from the bed of the truck and rode off north bound on Slate Rd, according to Blakely.

Tina Scott drove the truck to her residence, where she got a hand gun and her son, and went to find Mark and her purse.  Tina Scott found Mark and struck his bicycle with her truck, according to Blakely.

Blakely said Mark Scott and Tina Scott began fighting. Tina Scott’s son was assaulted by Mark Scott with an ax handle during this fight, according to Blakely. It was then that Tina Scott shot Mark Scott in the foot with a 9mm pistol, according to Blakely.

Both Mark Scott and Tina Scott were charged with Domestic Violence Assault 2nd.

The gun has not been recovered at this time.  Additional charges are pending.

      She needed the money to exercise her NRA right to buy more guns out of the trunk of a car!

        B, it is the NRA that is driving the legislative and court rulings that define what the Constitution “says.” Rights are the result of legislative and judiciary actions.

    It’s a crying shame they’ve already procreated.
