The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office and W. Joseph Turner, who is Callaway’s lawyer, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Bozarjian’s attorney Gloria Allred did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment, but told WSAV-TV in a statement: “Alex Bozarjian is glad that law enforcement is taking this matter seriously. She feels that a reporter should be able to do her job without being assaulted.”

Allred’s statement continued: “Alex wants to thank the members of the public who have reached out to her to offer support. If this case goes to trial, she will be a witness. For that reason, she will have no further comment until the case concludes, but she does hope that there will be a just result.”
