Woman injures deputy at Augusta Mall

A local woman is in jail with two felony obstruction charges after she injured a police officer at the Augusta Mall while fighting with her estranged husband, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s report.

At 1 p.m. Sunday, an officer working a special duty was told by mall security of a domestic dispute inside the Like Uniforms Store. Two officers went to the shop and saw a woman, identified as Torry Reynolds, 49, walking away from the store. Both deputies told her to stop, but she refused, according to the report.

One deputy warned her if he had to stop her physically, she would be arrested, but Reynolds continued. When the two deputies stopped her, she became aggressive, according to the report.

Once the officers had Reynolds on the ground, she grabbed one of the deputy’s hands and dug her fingernails into it, breaking the skin. With the help of a witness, the three men got Reynolds into custody, the report said.

Deputies later were told by the estranged husband that Reynolds had come to demand money from him while he was working at the store.
