SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said a Chesnee man was arrested after he assaulted a woman in a dispute about a trailer, and according to TruTV's website, the man is on one of their crime investigation shows.

On Tuesday, Spartanburg County deputies were called to the victim's Vannessa Drive home after she said Jay Russell, 43, showed up at her home uninvited, tried to take her trailer then assaulted her.

Deputies said when they spoke to the victim, she said she walked out front to find Russell hooking up the trailer to his truck, which he had given her two years earlier.

She told deputies the two of them got into a fight when she told him to leave, then she sat on the trailer to unhitch it but Russell lifted it up shoving her and pushing her off the trailer, according to the deputy's report.

Russell told deputies she pushed and slapped him after she told him to leave, the report said. One witness told deputies what the victim reported and that they both shoved each other while Russell's son, who was with him, affirmed his father story, according to the report. 

When the witness said he was going to call 911, Russell got into his truck and drove off, according to the report.

Russell told deputies he went home, also called 911 then went back to the victim's home where he was later arrested on a charge of third-degree assault and battery, deputies said.

According TruTV, Russell is on Southern Fried Stings.

According to the show's website, "Southern Fried Stings follows ex-State Trooper and addiction expert Jay Russell as he and his team take on tough and bizarre cases. From pulse-pounding takedowns to high-stakes interventions, viewers are put in the middle of the action as Jay and the team serve up their unique breed of Southern Justice."

Russell was released from jail on $1,000 bond.
