NAHUNTA — A Brantley County man was arrested Saturday on charges that included battery-family violence, cruelty to children and possession of drugs and a firearm, said Brantley County Sheriff Jack Whisenant.
Jeremy Michael Wilson, 26, was taken into custody and charged with cruelty to children, battery-family violence and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, possession and use of drug related objects and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, said Whisenant.
Deputies were dispatched to a house on Wisteria Lane in reference to a domestic dispute and found that Wilson had struck a victim there in the face, said Whisenant.
A search of Wilson turned up a .25-caliber handgun and a quantity of marijuana, said Whisenant.
Deputies and investigators with use of a K-9 unit found approximately 13 more ounces of marijuana in Wilson’s vehicle, along with a set of digital scales, Whisenant said.
The case remains under investigation.
