Police: SnapChat ignited fight that left 1 woman bleeding and another charged

FORT MILL — An argument over a social media post turned violent, leading to the arrest of a Fort Mill woman, a police report states.

Police responding to a 911 hang up went to a home on Banks Street in Fort Mill and arrested a woman accused of domestic violence after encountering a bloodied victim, according to an incident report.

On March 20, “as officers approached the back door of the residence officers could hear a verbal altercation inside the residence” and “announced themselves as the victim came outside visibly upset with blood on her t-shirt,” the report states.

“Officers observed a fresh bite mark on (the victim’s) face,” they said in the report.

Police then questioned the victim’s girlfriend, identified in the report as Megan Cross, 26. She allegedly told them that an argument started over a SnapChat post “involving their exes,” the report states. Cross told police that the victim, 33, assaulted her during the altercation and the victim later told them “she did hit Cross in self defense,” according to the report.

The officers noted in the report that “they observed the residence to be in disarray.” They also spoke with a neighbor who said he heard the couple yelling and the victim “screaming for help and he contacted law enforcement.”

According to the report, the neighbor said the victim knocked on his door. He opened it and saw “blood on her face and shirt, but (she) stated that everything was OK.”

Cross was charged with third degree domestic violence.
