Spartanburg Mom’s Account of Sibling Fight Sends Son to Jail

alan-edwardsA Spartanburg man was arrested last week after allegedly beating on his sister during an argument.
According to the incident report from the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office, a woman at an apartment on Laurel Glenn Circle told deputies that last Thursday afternoon her brother, identified as Alan Edwards, had busted into her residence telling her some other girls were going to come over and beat her up.
He threw a cup of water on her, threw her on the couch, and held her down by her hair. She yelled at him and told him he was going to jail.
Edwards said they were arguing over whose boyfriends and girlfriends were cheating on each other, said the report. He said his sister grabbed him by the neck and told him his girlfriend was a whore, said the report.
He said he never hit her and only held her down by her hands to keep her away from him.
The case resolved itself, however, when their mother told deputies that Edwards came “busting through the door” and cursed his sister. When his thrown object missed his sister, he poured water on her then rushed the couch and “began swinging” at his sister, the report said.
His sister tried to get him off, but he continued swinging at her.
Edwards eventually got up and left, his mother told investigators.
Edwards, 21, was arrested and charged with assault and battery.
