Man arrested for decking wife at Kiwanis Park

A Brooks man was arrested Saturday for punching his estranged wife in the head while in the parking lot of the Kiwanis Park on Redwine Road.

According to an incident report filed by the Fayette County Marshal’s Department, two witnesses saw Allen Glover, 37, punch Krystin Glover in the head, knocking her to the ground.

The incident occurred in front of the Glovers’ three young children, as the separated couple had met at the park so Mr. Glover could drop off the children with Mrs. Glover at the park so they wouldn’t be late to a baseball game, according to the report.

According to the arrest warrant, the punch left marks on the victim’s right ear and neck.

Allen Glover, who left the scene, was later arrested in Peachtree City and charged with simple battery (domestic violence) and cruelty to children in the third degree. The latter charge was because the alleged assault took place in view of the children, according to an arrest warrant filed in the case.

Glover was granted a $3,000 bond on each charge. A Fayette County Magistrate ordered Glover to avoid contacting the victim and all of her family members, and also to avoid physically abusing or threatening to physically abuse her.
