Woman injures intoxicated husband

August 3, 2004

Colquitt County - A SWAT team steps in to save a woman from her intoxicated husband, but not before she injured him first.

Thirty-four-year-old Melvin Lee Wacaser is in the Colquitt County Jail.

Over the weekend he threatened to hurt police and tried to knock down his wife. Colquitt County Sheriff Al Whittington says, "This young man's wife called said that he had struggled with her and pushed her to the ground. In turn, she picked up a piece of block and defended herself, struck him, knocking him to the ground."

Wacaser is also accused of shooting twice at a relative, but he missed. He's charged with aggravated assault, battery and possession of marijuana.
