Ceylon Mayor Domestic Assault 30 May 12

The mayor of the City of Ceylon faces criminal charges after being arrested for domestic assault on Sunday. 35-year-old John Dennis Gibeau was still in custody as of Tuesday after being arrested at his home in rural Jackson Sunday afternoon. His estranged wife had reportedly been dropping off their children for a visit when the 2 began to argue, and Gibeau asked her to leave. She claims that Gibeau had become angry and started to push her, so she attempted to call 911 when he took away her phone and called the authorities himself. He told authorities that she was trespassing, and denies pushing her. He was arrested for misdemeanor domestic assault and gross misdemeanor interfering with a 911 call, and faces up to 90 days in jail.
