Ballard, Ut.- On 3/2/23, Deputy Helms was dispatched to a residence in Ballard, Utah, on the report of a domestic violence incident.
When the Deputy arrived, he spoke with a female, identified as 29-year-old Kelby Faith Bird. While speaking with Kelby, Deputy Helms noticed her speech was slow and deliberate.
Kelby said she was in an argument with a male victim. During the argument, she went out to the garage and threw some of his tools around the garage. She then went into the bedroom after leaving the garage.
Bird said she was going to dump the victim's cup of tea out, but he took her down to the ground in the bedroom and held her until dispatch instructed them to separate.
The Deputy then spoke with the male victim and said during the argument, Kelby came out to the garage, threw his tools around, and then picked up a cordless drill and threw it at him.
Deputy Helms viewed the video footage, and in the video, Kelby can be seen looking directly at the victim and then throwing the drill. The drill lands approximately two feet in front of the victim.
The victim stated there was also an incident that occurred in the bedroom where Kelby picked up a mug of tea, and according to the victim, he believed she was going to throw it at him. He then took her to the ground and held on to her while on the phone with dispatch.
According to the male victim, dispatch advised him to let Kelby up and to separate, which he did.
After reviewing the video, Kelby was arrested and taken to the Uintah County Jail by an assisting Deputy. At the jail, the assisting Deputy performed a PBT on Kelby, and her results were .213 Brac.
