Marion County Dispatcher Gets Play By Play of Domestic Dispute From Both Participants Who Call 911
The dispatcher alternated talking to all three as a State Trooper and Sheriff's Deputy headed to the scene. Among the incidents that transpired were the father allegedly threatening his son with a gun and sticking it in his chest. The father at one point complained his son was trying to choke him. The son called 9-1-1 first, with the dad calling on his phone to give his own side of the story a short time later.
Once police arrived, they arrested the father, 50-year-old Tommy Williams of the Greenview Road in Centralia, for unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon. The son was not charged.
Deputies say the argument apparently began when the elder Williams was trying to get his son to leave the home. The call was received at 9:43 Friday morning.
