The Banks County Sheriff’s Office was called to a Nix Road residence Wednesday night on a report of possible gunfire. The deputy discovered a domestic dispute had occurred but the noise was not gunfire. A refrigerator was being moved and was dropped down the stairs onto concrete. There was reportedly an explosion when the “Freeon” in the refrigerator exploded.
According to sheriff’s office spokesman Carissa McFadden, the domestic dispute was found to be verbal and no charges were filed. When the deputy arrived, only the homeowner was at the residence. Two other family members who were reportedly involved in the dispute had left the residence.
