A Norwalk man accused of swinging a 3-foot pipe at his brother-in-law and damaging his vehicle is free on bond.

Jeremy S. Meade, 39, of 408 S. Old State Road, Apt. 16, is charged with two counts of felonious assault and one count each of criminal damaging and domestic violence. The charges are in connection with an incident about 5:10 p.m. Thursday at the old Coho Dam at the Milan Wildlife Area.

What started the set of circumstances, Erie County Sheriff Paul Sigsworth said, was "some text messaging going back and forth" between Meade and his brother-in-law, a 35-year-old Collins man. Sigsworth said the texts were about settling some differences about a pending divorce between Meade and his estranged wife, the Collins man's sister.

The trio met on Lovers Lane Road at the entrance to the old Coho Dam.

"They all arrived in separate vehicles," Sigsworth said.

"Meade went after (the Collins man) with a pipe. Apparently, (the victim) was able to outrun him," the sheriff said.

Next, Meade apparently went after his wife with the pipe, Sigsworth said, "but she was able to drive away from him." According to Sgt. Dennis Papineau's report, the wife said she'd driven her vehicle there to make sure her brother was going to be OK.

The male victim reported "he was standing outside of his Jeep when Jeremy drove up in a black Ford Escape and tried to hit him with the vehicle," according to the deputy's report. The victim, upon reportedly seeing Meade with "a black steel pipe" in his hands, ran northbound on Lovers Lane.

Meade, when he couldn't reach the man, yelled "If I can't get you, I will get your sister," then turned around ran southbound. Meade is accused of trying to hit his wife with the pipe, the report states.

Sigsworth said Meade then turned his attention to the man's Jeep with the pipe.

The vehicle had both tail lights knocked out, one headlight was destroyed, the other headlight was damaged and the window to the rear hatch was knocked out. The Jeep also had dents in the front quarter panel on the driver's side and in the rear passenger side door.

While Meade's wife and her brother were completing their written statements at the Milan substation, Meade called his wife's cell phone and reportedly threatened to kill both of them, according to the deputy's report.

Deputies contacted the Norwalk Police Department to assist in finding Meade. Capt. Eric Hipp responded to the suspect's residence, but he wasn't there.

Shortly after 12:15 a.m. Friday, police reported finding Meade at Charlie's Bar, where he was arrested without incident. He then was released to a deputy.

Meade was released later from the Erie County Jail, having posted a $100,000 bond.

She has been done with him since the beginning of November if it is any of your business and when he drinks he gets abusive. THIS TIME HE WENT WAY TOO FAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, it's not like it was a news flash to the brother that Jeremy has a temper, so poor choice of judgement on his part. And IF the wife has been away from this abusive relationship since November, then it was VERY POOR judgement on her part to even go back in the eyesight of the abuser. Isn't that like waving candy in front of a babies face? Now, I know domestic abuse is never ok no matter what the situation, but lets be truthful. She has gone many rounds with Jeremy and has had ample opportunities to get out. And, this relationship is not her first go around with abusive guys. Jeremy and her are both alcholics and need to seek treatment for such, but she also needs to gets help with her self esteem because apparently she seems to think that all she deserves is men who beat her and we all know that's not true, NOBODY DESERVES THAT!
