According to a probable cause affidavit, the alleged victim told officers he arrived to his home after work around 7:20 p.m. to find a belligerent 23-year-old Skyler Hughett in the kitchen.

While the complainant was in his bedroom changing out of his work clothes, Hughett pushed the man onto the bed and threatened to kill him.

Hughett told police he and the complainant took part of an argument over money. Hughett told police the complainant swung at him about five times but never made contact. That is when Hughett picked the complainant up and threw him into the counter.

Hughett was arrested on a charge of battery.
