On Sept. 26, officers responded to a 911 call from a home in Tatum. According to the Marlboro County Sheriff’s Office, the female caller said her brother was “actively beating their mother."
Deputies who arrived at the home found the victim and witness, who told police that 39-year-old Gordon Love allegedly struck his mother in the head with a pool stick, officials said.
Police said Love also allegedly slammed his mother’s head repeatedly into a countertop.
Investigators determined Love was upset “due to him being on a GPS ankle monitor” and he was “demanding family members pay for it to be removed.”
Love fled the scene before deputies could arrive, and law enforcement obtained an arrest warrant.
