A Bay County Sheriff's Deputy was in the right place at the right time early this morning.

Deputy Perry was patrolling Sims Avenue around 2 a.m. when he saw a man on top of a woman on the side of the road. The man was allegedly choking the woman with a pipe and putting dirt in her mouth.

The deputy arrested Gregory Johnson who lives on Sims Avenue. The victim said she and Johnson live together and got into a fight earlier in the evening.

She told deputies she left the house and Johnson chased her, caught up to her and began hitting, kicking and choking her with a pipe. According to the victim, Johnson told her "I'm gonna kill you" as he hit her.

Investigators found blood throughout the couple's house. Johnson told them it was his blood because he cut his hand breaking a window to get inside when the victim locked him out.

The victim was treated at the scene and released. Johnson is charged with aggravated domestic battery.

    The deputy should mind his own business and stay out of other peoples affairs. That not what the taxpayers pay him for.

      Really? you think he should mind his own business. Nice, I wouldn't call for help if you ever need, they might not want to bother you.

    He should have been charged with intent to kill as well if he actually said that.

    Well done, Deputy Perry.

    sounds like attempted murder to me, especially when you have a pipe, putting dirt in the mouth and saying 'i am going to kill you'.

    People like this scumbag Gregory Johnson should be taken out into the woods and beaten within an inch of his life.

    Clearly this man is a few french fries short of a happy meal. I think he should stay in jail for a while, like until he forgets about her and can get his act together and not be so violent. Maybe he should just be a hermit, move out in to the woods and forget about people, if he is this violent.
