The city clerk for Oakwood was arrested Thursday evening and charged with simple battery and obstruction, according to authorities.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a domestic call around 10:10 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22 on East Bolding Road.

Tangee Puckett was charged with simple battery under the Family Violence Act. Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth said the victim was a 39-year-old man.

“Puckett is also charged with obstruction after being uncooperative with deputies while being taken into custody. Both charges are misdemeanors,” Booth wrote in an email.

She was booked in to the Hall County Jail and held on a $2,600 bond. She was not listed on the jail database Friday evening.

Oakwood City Manager Stan Brown confirmed Puckett’s arrest.

“Until we get a chance really to evaluate the whole picture, I really don’t have a whole lot that I can say,” Brown said Friday, Aug. 23.

Brown said he has been working toward getting a copy of the report.

“I’ll be gathering information. This certainly is a serious matter, and we’ll give it its due review,” Brown said.

The Times sent an email to Puckett’s work email account after hours Friday seeking comment.

The case is still under investigation.
