On July 15th Deputies Avant, Mitchell, and Keppen responded to a simple assault at 5363 Autumn Forrest Drive. When officers made the scene, the gray BMW referenced in the report for the domestic violence incident was parked in the driveway. The officers observed the scratched paint on the hood of the car and the shattered front windshield. There were visible scratches and bruises on both parties, so they were immediately separated and questioned about the altercation. Both Martrevion Sturghill and the victim advised that they had gotten into an argument regarding a social media post.

The argument spilled outside of the residence when the victim walked down the street away from the home. Sturghill followed his girlfriend in the BMW to the intersection of Autumn Forrest Drive and Heritage Oaks Drive where the pair got into another verbal altercation. During the argument, she climbed onto the hood of the vehicle and proceeded to pound on the windshield with her cell phone. Martrevion advised he pressed the gas pedal “in a playful manner” causing the victim to fall through the windshield shattering it completely, per report. After the impact, he got out of the car to check on her and the two returned to the residence.

Martrevion Sturghill was arrested and charged with domestic assault with bodily harm and reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon. His bond was set at $1,000.
