Bristolville man charged in domestic incident

BRISTOL — A Bristolville man was arrested early Wednesday after allegedly using a club to break up an argument between his two adult sons.

Charles A. Snyder, 65, 1518 Hyde Shaffer Road NW, is expected to be arraigned this morning through a video hookup between the Trumbull County jail and Newton Falls Municipal Court, a court clerk said. Snyder faces a charge of domestic violence after sheriff deputies responded to a call at the Hyde Shaffer Road home after 1 a.m.

A man said he was involved in an argument with his brother over a woman when his father grabbed a “tire buddy” and started swinging the club — striking the man across the back twice and once in the ear. The man was not hospitalized and the father admitted to swinging the club but not hitting anyone, the report states.
