RICHMOND COUNTY, GA (WRDW/WAGT) -- Two incident reports reveal new details about a Richmond County sheriff's deputy charged in a domestic dispute.

According to the most recent Columbia County Sheriff's Office incident report, Jason McCall got into an argument with his wife because she was "texting her friends."

McCall, the report said, then left his home to go to several bars before returning home "highly intoxicated."

The report said that's when McCall became agitated and a fight ensued.

McCall's wife, according to the report, had a bruise on her right cheek and chin.

McCall has been charged with battery, aggravated assault, and third-degree cruelty to children.

According to another incident report, this isn't the first time McCall has been accused of hurting his now-wife. In September 2012, McCall said he and his then-girlfriend got into a fight that lasted into the next day.

McCall said in the report he got into his car to leave and his wife came outside and stood by his car, taking photos of him. The report says McCall told her "multiple times" he was going to back out of the driveway, and when he did he ran over her foot.

He states he called the sheriff's office right away. His wife gave a similar statement to deputies, but says he intentionally turned his wheel to run over her foot.

The second report also says the argument the night before began over different men and women listed in each other's phones. They have different reports of what happened after that - McCall says she lunged at him for her phone and cut his cheek before he grabbed her and pushed her off of him, while the wife says he grabbed her by the arm and threw her down. She says she scratched him accidentally while she was falling.

Since the stories were different and no one witnessed the event, no charges were filed in 2012.
