•Alvin Lenard Walker Jr., 30, and Destiney Floyd, 21, both of Milan, were both charged with simple assault following a Dec. 21 incident in Cedar Grove.
According to the report by Deputy Michael Sevarns, Walker and Floyd allegedly attacked James Edwards (Floyd’s stepfather) at his residence on Griggs Chapel Road. A witness told deputies that Floyd had been picked up from a Milan motel and brought to that address after Floyd called and said that she had been kicked out of her residence by her boyfriend (Walker). Shortly thereafter, Walker showed up, asking to speak with Floyd. The witness said that Floyd asked Edwards to go outside and tell Walker to leave, but when Edwards told Walker to leave the property, Walker pushed Edwards to the ground and started punching and kicking him. At one point, Floyd allegedly jumped on Edwards and started kicking and punching him, as well. Another resident confronted Walker and Floyd with a baseball bat and taser device, after which they left the residence in a vehicle. They were found and taken into custody by authorities a few hours later at a motel in Milan. Edwards was transported by ambulance to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries.
