Enfield man faces charges in domestic incident

Posted October 19, 2012

A 27-year-old Enfield man is facing multiple charges after authorities said he threatened a woman with a baseball bat.

Halifax County Sheriff deputies said Friday they were called Wednesday to a home on Whitehead Road by the woman, who said the suspect had threatened her with the bat and also had a shotgun. The woman fled the home and had phoned authorities from a neighbor’s house.

Deputies said they arrived and could see the man, identified as Timothy Bobbit, peeking out of the front window. Bobbit opened the door and partially came out to speak with the deputies, who rushed inside.

Deputies said Bobbit was “aggressive and irate,” and they could see a baseball bat on a bed. When Bobbit attempted to enter the bedroom, Deputy Dreher Bozard deployed his Taser on the suspect.

Authorities said they found potted marijuana plants in the home.

Bobbit was charged with three counts of resisting a public officer, one count of manufacture of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and communicating threats. He was held on $30,000 bond and a scheduled for a Nov. 14 court appearance.

    Choose the right man or woman to enter into your life. Otherwise you can wind up with a domestic person, including women. They are not saints; as they pretend to be.

    If the State of NC would prosecute these individuals and send them to prison she wouldn't have to move anywhere.

    Absolutely shocking to know that we have an incident of domestic violence and that the same person was actually growing pot. Come on...we've got to have more news worthy items out there. ...not trying to downplay the fact that this is a crime but I'm sure there were probably at least 50 cases of the same thing this week...why broadcast this one?
