Ex-wife/fiancee battery victim

THOMASVILLE — A Thomas County woman lost a tooth in a Sunday altercation.

The Thomas County Sheriff’s Office chief investigator said the victim is the perpetrator’s ex-wife and fiancee.

James Lamar Haluska, 37, South Pinetree Boulevard, got into an altercation with a woman from whom he is divorced and plans to remarry.

“He actually knocked a tooth out,” said Lt. Tim Watkins.

Haluska also kept the woman in a room and would not allow her to leave, Watkins said.

“He was intoxicated,” the investigator explained.

Haluska is charged with two counts of false imprisonment, aggravated battery and obstructing or hindering person making emergency telephone call.

The suspect is being held at the Thomas County Jail in lieu of a $5,100 bond.
