Domestic dispute in Twin Bridges
An alleged incident of domestic violence at the King’s Motel in Twin Bridges was reported by motel owners Jeffrey and Mindy Mills. The incident, according to Mills, began this morning when they heard a female screaming “No!.... Help me!” The female and the male had arrived to the motel the evening before in a car with Illinois plates, and booked a room for the evening.
The couple was allegedly in a dispute and her face was bloodied, the Mills called Madison County Sheriffs Office. A second unknown man appeared during the dispute and the two men sped off on Hwy 287, south towards Sheridan. The car was pursued, then apprehended near 213 Mill Creek Road in Sheridan. The female was taken to the hospital by ambulance but later released.
The incident was initially reported as an ‘active shooter’ because the man in the dispute was reported to have a gun though it was not fired near the motel. Acting out of caution, Walters grocery store and the Ruby Valley Pool were closed and put on lockdown. The store reopened after only a few minutes.
Madison County put out an alert to its residents informing them of the situation and sent another when it was resolved.
