43-year-old Charles Rector was charged with domestic assault and false imprisonment after his wife claimed he wrestled a tablet from her for recording him while he drank beer and watched a football game.
On December 6th, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Weber conducted a welfare check at 4355 Memory Lane. Kate Linder contacted dispatch and stated her friend, Pamela Rector, messaged her and asked her to contact authorities. Upon arrival, the deputy made contact with Charles Rector. Charles stated he and his wife, Pamela, got into a verbal disagreement. He claimed he was drinking beer and watching a football game when Pamela began to record him on his child’s tablet. He said he took the tablet from her, and nothing physical happened.
When the deputy spoke with Pamela, she said he attempted to grab the tablet from her but did not get it the first time, so he wrestled her for it. She had noticeable red marks, scratches, and a cut on her finger. The tablet broke during the altercation, and Charles threw it into the trash. She stated he took all of their keys and both phones, stating she “definitely wasn’t leaving.” Pamela retrieved a spare phone her daughter uses for the internet, went outside, and contacted Kate. Deputy Weber deemed Charles was the primary aggressor.
Charles Rector was arrested and charged with false imprisonment and domestic assault. He was later released on a $1,500 bond.
