According to the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office, Dep. Bobby Sims, Sgt. Jared Nichols and Inv.

Diana reportedly confronted Pamela in the front yard and, at one point, thought Pamela had punched her in her left side. However, she looked down and saw blood. Pamela then got in her car and left the residence.
The investigation continues. No charges have been filed.
