Bison Valley woman arrested after hair-pulling battle over children

Carrie Head

A Bison Valley woman was arrested after a hair-pulling battle over children at her home.

Sumter County sheriff’s deputies had been called this past Friday night to the home of 33-year-old Carrie Lee Head on NE 51st Circle.

Head had been in an argument with her sister over children staying in the home. The argument moved into the bedroom and turned physical when Head began pulling her sister’s hair, according to the arrest report. The dispute then moved to the garage where yelling and screaming, as well as pushing and shoving, took place. The victim added that she was not happy that Head “was seeing another guy.”

Head said the argument had been over who would care for the children that evening. She denied striking her sister, who had called 911.

It was believed both parties had consumed alcoholic beverages prior to this argument,” the deputy wrote in the arrest report.

Head was arrested on a charge of battery and booked at the Sumter County Detention Center. She was released after posting $2,000 bond.
