Three people were arrested Saturday morning at a home in Harrison after a woman came to the house demanding money she said she was owed.

Deputies with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office were called to 7709 Short Tail Springs Road at approximately 10:51 a.m. on a possible home invasion.

Deputies found several people outside of the residence who did not live there along with the woman who called police.

Connie Harrold said Betty Jo Hullander entered her home and demanded money owed to her. At this time a physical altercation took place between Ms. Harrold and Ms. Hullender, who was armed with a knife.  During the altercation both women suffered minor injuries.

While outside the residence, Ms. Hullander took a baseball bat and knocked out the glass from several vehicles, deputies said.  

They said Bryan Oliver arrived at the scene evidently to assist Ms. Hullander, he tried to gain access to the home, but was not successful.

All those involved knew each other, it was stated.

Ms. Hullander and Ms. Harrold were treated for minor injuries before being transported to the Hamilton County Jail.

Betty Jo Hullander was charged with especially aggravated burglary, aggravated assault and vandalism.

Bryan Oliver was charged with possession of a handgun during the commission of a felony, aggravated assault and aggravated burglary.
