Abusive man calls police on self

WILLIAMSFIELD TOWNSHIP — A man out on bond in a felonious assault case was accused Tuesday of assaulting his girlfriend and then calling the Sheriff's Office and asking to go to jail.

Jesse Reed, 27, of Williamsfield, was arrested just before 1 a.m. on a charge of domestic violence, according to a police report. 

Reed was indicted in June on charges of aggravated burglary, discharge of a firearm on or near a prohibited premises and using weapons while intoxicated, court records state. Those charges stem from a May incident in Andover where an intoxicated Reed was accused of firing shots into a home where a group of teens and young adults were having a party.

On Tuesday Reed, once again intoxicated, reportedly called the Sheriff's Office to say he assaulted his girlfriend by biting her on the chin and he wanted to go to jail, the report states. The incident occurred at a home in the 6700 block of William Avenue.

Reed told a deputy a heated argument took place over his girlfriend wanting to spend money on marijuana when he suggested she should spend it on Christmas presents for her child, the report states.

Reed told the deputy that as the argument escalated his girlfriend got extremely close to him and he bit her chin out of frustration.

The woman, who reported being tired of abuse at the hand's of Reed, left the home with her ex-boyfriend, the report states. She reported that Reed threw her to the ground, broke down a door to get to her and threatened to "beat her to a bloody pulp."
