A Liberty woman who became upset over a text message her male companion received from another woman led to a series of incidents that earned her a trip to the Waldo County Jail Sunday, April 21.

Deputies with the Waldo County Sheriff's Office arrested Shelly-Ann Salisbury, 35, on charges of domestic violence assault (with a prior conviction), criminal mischief, criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and obstructing the report of a crime or injury after police were called to her residence just after 10 p.m.

Waldo County Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton said a male called police to report he was involved in a domestic situation with Salisbury.

Once the officers arrived, Trafton said, they learned Salisbury had become upset after the man left his cell phone at the home and she saw a text message he received from another woman.

It didn't take long for the situation to escalate, Trafton said.

"She actually pulled a knife on him, and threatened him with the knife," Trafton said.

Salisbury also allegedly tore a cord out of a computer, and ripped the phone cord out of the wall when he initially tried to call 911, Trafton said. Salisbury also destroyed some of the man's belongings, including a lamp, and Trafton said the alleged victim had a small cut on his left elbow and across his forehead.

The man did not require medical treatment. Salisbury was transported to the Waldo County Jail.
