A Rome man was in jail without bond Monday night after being accused of battering a woman at a Woodward Street home and attempting to pull her back inside as she called for help.
According to Floyd County Jail reports:
Billy Franklin Miller Jr., 32, of 213 Woodward St., was arrested at 1:30 p.m. Monday. While in his home, he threw an iPhone that was covered with an OtterBox at the woman, hitting her in the eye. The woman’s eye swelled up and began to bleed. This caused her to stumble over two tables and knock over a lamp as she tried to get out of the house.
When she got outside, she began to scream for help and for someone to call 911. Miller grabbed he and began pulling her back to the house, while she continued to yell for help.
Miller is charged with felony aggravated battery, kidnapping and false imprisonment.
