According to a police report provided by Summerville Police Detectives, Abby Winters, Wife of Chattooga Commissioner Jason Winters, poured a fountain drink over the head of a reporter at a county budget meeting on Friday morning.
After pouring the drink on the reporter, Winters is reported to have said that she “Deserved that” before leaving the meeting room.
The reporter was a Casie Bryant of an “All-On-Georgia” Chattooga news website.
Evidently Ms. Bryant had made a post on social media about the commissioner and his wife prior to the county budget meeting which inspired this action taken by Winters.
Police issued an active warrant for Abby Winters for Simple Battery and Disorderly Conduct.
***Update (Via WEIS Radio):
Abby Winters turned herself into law enforcement on Friday evening and posted bail on two misdemeanor charges stemming from an incident at the Commissioner’s Office on Friday morning.
Winters was released on a $270 bond on the disorderly conduct charge and a $1,250 bond on the simple battery charge.
