32-year-old Kimberly Glover was charged with child abuse, assault, DUI, reckless driving, and disorderly conduct after coming home from drinking, getting into an argument with her husband, and leaving in her car with her 6-week-old son.
On October 21st, Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputy Adkins and Campbell responded to a disturbance call of a Hyundai Sonata driving recklessly in the area of Raleigh Lagrange Road and Amberly Village Drive. They also received another call from Larry Pinkins who advised that his wife left with the Hyundai Sonata. While heading towards the residence, deputies observed the suspect vehicle traveling in the opposite direction and swerved to avoid being hit. When deputies arrived at 1000 Dusty Cove, they were met with the suspect vehicle and identified Kimberly Glover as the driver and her newborn son was in the backseat.
Pinkins advised police that while he was in the bedroom with their child, his wife came in and became angry with him. She accused him of cheating and began throwing clothes and other objects at him. He stated Glover broke their TV, scratched, and slapped him. Pinkins claimed to have pushed Glover in self-defense and after she left the residence with their baby, both contacted the police. When deputies made contact with Glover, there was a strong odor coming from her. She stated she had a few drinks at Bahama Breeze but could not recount the sequence of events and refused to speak with officers further.
There was a bite mark on Pinkins’ right arm and visible cuts on his lip, right wrist, and elbow. Glover had scabbed marks but they appeared to be from a previous incident. Officers spoke on the phone with a witness who stated Glover ran a stop sign, nearly hitting her vehicle. She then stepped out of the car and stated “I have a pistol in the car and I’m not messing with you girls.”
Kimberly Glover was arrested and charged with child abuse, assault, driving under the influence, reckless driving, and disorderly conduct. She was released on a $1,000 bond.
