A 21-year-old is in the Richmond County Jail after deputies said he shot his girlfriend several times with a pellet gun.

His ex-girlfriend, 25, called deputies to her home on the 3100 block of Wrightsboro Road around 11 p.m. Friday after Tobias Weaver entered the home they shared, choked her and then shot her three times with the pellet gun, according to an incident report.

The victim told deputies she had broken up with Weaver earlier that day.

Weaver was charged with simple battery.

The victim suffered superficial injuries from the incident.

The Richmond County Sheriff's

The Richmond County Sheriff's Dept evidently does not take boyfriend/girlfriend disputes very seriously. When that cop killer punched his girlfriend in the face multiple times a couple of weeks earlier they charged him with simple assault. Obviously domestic violence between boyfriend and girlfriends which result in assaults is petty business for the RCSD!

It's tough in a ghetto, crime
Unpublished

It's tough in a ghetto, crime ridden area like Augusta to determine who needs to be in jail longer. They probably place OGs on a higher priority to get harsher sentences.
