A Huntingburg man has been arrested on a felony charge of domestic battery (Class D). 29-year old Matthew Scales was taken into custody early Tuesday morning after police were called to his home in the 800 block of East 7th Street for a domestic disturbance.
Police found Scales’ wife with a small cut to the right side of her face. She told police her husband had battered her.
Police say Matthew Scales fled the home before police arrived, but returned a short time later and was taken into custody. He’s also charged with interference with reporting a crime and leaving the scene of an accident (both A misdemeanors).
