Noncompliance adds charge for Anderson-Moats

TAYLOR COUNTY—A combative woman found herself in trouble, following a disturbance call early Sunday morning.

Teresa Tess Anderson-Moats has been charged with obstructing an officer and domestic assault after police were called to a disturbance at a residence on Lincoln Street just before 4:00 a.m. on Sunday.

According to the criminal complaint filed by Grafton City Police Department Patrolman Garrett Ware, he and Taylor County Sheriff’s Deputy Travenski reported to the home, and once inside, sought to separate the victim from Anderson-Moats.

The defendant in the matter was reportedly asked to step outside of the residence to speak with the deputy multiple times but refused. She was then placed in detainment by the officers, so that Ware could speak with the victim.

During the interview, the victim told the officer that he had obtained an eviction notice for Anderson-Moats, and she was asked to leave the residence.

The complaint states that victim disclosed that Anderson-Moats told him that if he didn’t leave her house, she was going to kill him.

Anderson-Moats was taken into custody and transported to the Grafton Police Department for questioning and processing.

She was then transported to the Tygart Valley Regional Jail, where she is still being held.
