Man arrested for breaking snow globe over his brother’s head


Charles Irving Williams, 68, was arrested yesterday and charged with aggravated battery after allegedly smashing a snow globe over his brother’s head.

According to the arrest report, the victim said that when he arrived at the residence they share, he lay down on the sofa, and Williams came into the room and asked him why he was there. The victim said he told Williams he didn’t want to start an argument, and Williams then picked up a glass snow globe and hit him on the head. The officer reported that the victim had shards of glass and glitter on his face, along with water on his shirt and glitter in the hood of his shirt.

Post Miranda, Williams reportedly said he heard someone in the kitchen, saw the victim there, and told him to leave. He reportedly said that as he turned around to walk out of the room, the victim hit him in the back with a chair, then they got into a physical fight and several items were knocked down, including the snow globe. Williams also reportedly said he didn’t know how glass got on the couch and changed his story about where he was hit with the chair.

The officer reported that he did not see any marks on Williams’ back that were consistent with his account, but he saw broken glass and glitter on the sofa, matching the victim’s account.

Williams was most recently arrested on March 29 for failure to appear at a court hearing for failure to comply with the provisions of a 6-month probation ordered in September 2021 for driving without a valid license. He was released on his own recognizance but is now being held on $100,000 bond.
