The spouse of a Fort Gordon soldier and a soldier were charged in federal court this week in separate misdemeanor cases.

Daymon Hall is charged with two counts of “DUI on a military reservation,” according to a criminal information complaint, a charging tool used by the feds.

30-year-old Tapria Russell is charged with simple assault, according to her criminal information complaint.

Federal prosecutors have one of their own working at Fort Gordon.

Fort Gordon attack victim

Soldier’s wife Ashley Taylor – who was the victim of an attack on Base

The spouse of a soldier, Russell is accused of assaulting 29-year-old Ashley Taylor – the spouse of another soldier – “by hitting her in the face with her hand,” on Nov. 16, 2016 at Fort Gordon, the federal information states.
Taylor was 28 at the time of the attack.

Taylor says there had been a problem with people not picking up after their dogs in the neighborhood. Taylor spotted the Russell’s son with the family dog and offered him a baggie.

“After the dog did it’s business .. (Taylor noticed) he had a large leaf in his hand.”

“Trying to be a good neighbor, I offered him a baggy,” Taylor told S.E. Social Justice Breaking News this morning.

“He said ‘no’. I offered again and pointed out community guidelines. He said no again and became aggressive.”

A short time later, Russell and her solder spouse allegedly showed up at Taylor’s door in a furor.

“She was aggressively angry, yelled at me for talking to her son. And I panicked. My children were on the other side of our screen door watching.”

The three adults had never met before and Taylor repeatedly asked the Russells to leave.

“She threatened me repeatedly and in an effort to calm everyone down, I literally sat on the ground and asked her to sit and talk with me,” Taylor recounted.

“She refused (and) continued to threaten me,” Taylor said.

“Ultimately (Tapria Russell) punched me in the face on my right side,” Taylor said of the attack that left her confused by its allegedly aggressive nature. “My glasses flew across the carport and broke.”

That’s when the Russells left and Taylor called Fort Gordon Military Police.
“Her spouse grabbed her and they took off running. I finally felt it was safe enough to turn around, ran inside, and called the MPs.”

Taylor was concerned the case would never be prosecuted – and at one point – as MPs were trying to get to the bottom of the incident – Taylor felt like a suspect.

“I made a report, took pictures, and was threatened by the MPs with assault, even though I never laid a finger on anyone,” Taylor said.

Taylor is pleased the case will finally go to court.

If convicted, Russell faces up to six months in federal prison plus a maximum $5,000 fine.

Both charges against Hall involve alleged drunken driving on June 24, 2917 on base for “unlawfully driving a moving vehicle” after allegedly drinking too much alcohol, the information states.
If convicted, Hall faces no more than 12 months in federal prison on each of the two counts plus a maximum of $2,000 in fines, and 40 days community service and the completion of a DUI alcohol use risk reduction course.

(Swainsboro, GA) – Emanuel County law enforcement was called to a double domestic assault shortly after 4 a.m. this morning, Saturday, Dec. 16, 2017 that left two in jail and one of those needing paramedics.

Roadway Inn, Old Swainsboro Inn 12-16-17

The call was to room 131 at the Rodeway Inn (formerly Swainsboro Inn) at 612 South Main Street in Swainsboro, GA. Police arrived quickly, and just as quickly had both cuffed and en-route to jail.

A white female and a black male – names unknown – were taken as apparent mutual combatants to the Emanuel County Jail located at 769 GA-57 in Swainsboro.

However, while en-route with the suspects, officers requested that an ambulance meet them at the county jail. The male suspect/victim requested to be treated for a “neck injury” that police say the male suspect received in a traffic accident several days ago.
