Reports of a domestic dispute resulted in the arrest of a woman who reportedly assaulted her common-law husband with a golf club.

Intoxicated youth found with stolen vehicle
While responding to a report of a stolen vehicle Oct. 8 at 7:15 p.m., police located the vehicle north of Secondary Highway 611.

Alcohol a factor in collision
