A woman and her ex-boyfriend were both arrested Wednesday after the two teamed up and beat up the woman’s current boyfriend – who was also struck by a truck.

Around 4:30 p.m., authorities with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 200-block of Glazier Road near Haralson about an assault, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office. When they arrived, they found the victim, who was beaten up and bruised. He was later transported to Piedmont Newnan Hospital for a broken arm and wrist and a few other injuries, including a gash to his head.

According to Yarbrough, the suspects in the assault are the victim’s girlfriend, Jennifer Renee Waters, 28, and Waters’ ex-boyfriend, Paul Monroe Binion Jr., 29, recently released from prison. Authorities learned Waters and Binion met in Union City, and he drove her to Glazier Road in a 1999 Mazda B3000 pickup truck. This truck turned out to be stolen out of Fulton County.

When Waters and Binion arrived at Waters’ boyfriend’s home, they attacked the boyfriend and beat him up, Yarbrough said. At one point during the altercation, authorities suspect Waters hit her boyfriend in the head with a knife.

Waters and Binion left the scene after the fight and drove to Waters’ home at 55 Glazier Road, Yarbrough said. There, Waters got out of the vehicle, but Binion returned to her boyfriend’s house. When he pulled up, Binion apparently saw that Waters’ boyfriend was still standing, so Binion accelerated and struck the boyfriend with the truck, running him over. Binion then left the scene.

Authorities were able to locate and arrest both Waters and Binion. Waters was charged with battery and aggravated assault with a knife, and Binion was charged with aggravated assault with other weapon, theft by receiving and violating the Georgia Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act. Binion, who has gang tattoos on his face, admitted to being a member of the 74 Gangsta Disciples. Both were transported to the Coweta County Jail.
