Just before midnight April 5, 2011 the Dothan Police Department responded to a pedestrian struck by a vehicle in the parking lot of Pockets Lounge, 2086 Montgomery Highway. Upon arrival, police learned the victim, an adult female, was with the driver of the vehicle just before she was struck. Witnesses told police the two were arguing just before the victim was hit. The victim was taken to a local hospital with severe injuries. The suspect was arrested and at this time is being held for domestic violence, charges that may be upgraded later today as police continue to investigate the crime.

• Preston Hamilton, white male, 19 years of age, of Mona Drive was arrested and charged with First Degree Domestic Violence.

    Haven't heard any thing new on this. Were charges increased? if so, to what? Is the woman ok? The articles said severe injuries, so is she going to be ok? Was he bailed out? This just makes me sick, a young man just ruined the rest of his life.

    Let's not go pointing fingers at the 'young' people, because if my 'young' memeorie serves me correct there have been plenty of... well let's call it 'advanced' age that have done some pretty dumb things out of anger. Just remember that when you are unable to take care of yourself it will be who? yes the so called 'young' people taking care of you. So let's not blame ignorance on youth but on just plain ignorance.

    Well he is young, but not dumb. I knew him personally and tried to help him on a number of occasions. sometimes just takes the power of God.

      And a few years in a CORRECTIONAL facility. I think he'll learn you can't do what you want to ,because you're angry. Maybe he's stupid instead of dumb.You tried to help him,I guess it didn't work.

    Should have known it was the young and dumb. If that injured person dies he'll be up sh** creek.You should never let your temper get the best of you.Takes about a snap of your fingers to do something very regrettable when you're angry.

      That isn't just for the "young". There have been MANY people of... we'll say 'advanced' age that have done some pretty dumb things in anger. So lets not point fingers at the young. Remember, we are the future generation and when you are old and unable to care for yurself it will be us taking care of you!

        Yeah, take care of me, like a slug in the back of the head. It will come to that before long. Wages for carrying for the old are not that great.
