The man showed the deputy a small red mark on his arm.

That object was a cardboard tube, similar to a wrapping paper tube,” and after he tried to buy drugs for her, then reached out to her mother and her, “she grabbed the cardboard tube and punched (the man) in self-defense.”
She didn’t want to pursue, just wanted the man to leave. A criminal trespassing notice was issued to the man.
