Cops: Woman takes baseball bat to man, car, TV

A Hall County woman was arrested after she took an aluminum baseball bat to a man she lived with in a domestic incident, the sheriff’s office said.

Tess Alexandria Bayne-Balentine, 23, of Flowery Branch,  also wielded the bat on the man’s car and a flat-screen television in their residence, damaging both, Lt. Scott Ware said in a news release.

She was arrested Saturday without incident at a location on Ashland Drive at Elizabeth Lane.

Bayne-Balentine was charged with aggravated assault, second-degree criminal damage to property and possession of marijuana, Ware said. She was booked into the Hall County Jail.
