A Fishersville man accused of beating his wife with a shower head last year was recently indicted by the Augusta County grand jury, court records show.
On Sept. 15, a 51-year-old woman showed up at the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office in Verona with “significant injures” to her head, an arrest report said.
The woman told authorities she was taking a shower at their home the day before when her husband reportedly attacked her with the shower head she’d been using.
A visible mark in the center of the woman’s forehead a day after the alleged attack was consistent with that of the shower head in question, said Maj. Brian Jenkins of the sheriff’s office.
The incident took place on Wyndham Hill Drive in Fishersville. Jenkins said the woman was arguing with her husband, 66-year-old Dave Meadows, about her being late for work and a lack of room in their bathroom.
Meadows is accused of repeatedly hitting the woman with the shower head. He is charged with malicious wounding, court records show.
Meadows is free on a $10,000 secured bond and can have no contact with his wife, according to court records.
