Responding to a report of a domestic dispute Sunday at the police station, Patrolman Chris Green found Valerie Barker crying and upset, claiming her husband, Lonnie, had beaten her up the previous night. She reported he had taken her cell phone and blocked the door to keep her from getting help while her children were screaming and crying for him to stop. When he got into the shower Sunday morning, Mrs. Barker got her car keys and phone so she could leave the house. At their Spring Grove Avenue home, Green reported finding Mr. Barker loading four-wheelers into a truck with two children present. Another officer took the children to their mother, and Barker was placed under arrest for domestic violence. After being given permission to search the residence by Mrs. Barker due to firearms being present, officers confiscated seven firearms of various caliber, several boxes of ammunition and two compound hunting bows from the couple's bedroom. Mr. Barker was also charged with weapons under disability due to having had a previous felony conviction for assault on a police officer.
