Linda Buffy Doughty, 48, was rushed to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital before being transferred to an Augusta, GA bum center for specialized care. Officers and EMTs were dispatched to the Hentz Avenue residence of Harmon Nathan Brody, 60, around 8 p.m. where they found Doughty in tears with blisters forming on her face and right arm. Brody declined treatment for a wrist injury caused when Doughty hit him with a baseball bat. Brody said they began arguing when he discovered she had emptied his bank account of nearly $1,400, creating overdraft fees as well after leaving a negative balance. She said their dispute started when he got mad that she had eaten an apple pie. Doughty said she was in the bedroom on the computer when he came in upset. She said he grabbed her and tried to throw her out of the house. She told officers she picked up a baseball bat to defend herself and HARMON BRODY own in her face hit Brody during their altercation. She said they met on the internet three years ago and since that time, had often argued but "never like this." She said Brody told her, "Nobody tries me like that in my house." She went into the kitchen to get away from him and started boiling water to make tea. When Brody later came into the kitchen, he grabbed the pot of boiling water from the stove and splashed some in her direction. Then he threw the boiling water at her, which blistered her face and an arm she raised in an effort to protect herself. She said Brody offered to call one of his friends to drive her to the hospital. She declined and he called 911. After calling for an ambulance, he asked if she was going to tell anyone he had thrown boiling water on her. Once he arrived at the Blountstown Police Department, Brody initially agreed to give a taped statement but then decided against doing so and asked for an attomey.
