Man Charged with Assault After Striking Girlfriend in the Face

A Lancaster, South Carolina man is being charged with assault, criminal domestic violence, and malicious injury to property.  According to the police report, the incident occurred at Spoke Bar and Grill in Lancaster.  It is alleged that the man confronted a woman about speaking to another woman, and then punched the other woman in the face.

Thereafter, the woman left, walking into another bar; later in the night, the two met once again.  Witnesses say that the boyfriend demanded that she come with him, backed her into a wall, grabbed her by the throat, and punched her in the face.  Finally, as the man was walking out of the bar, he allegedly engaged in a fight with a bouncer at the bar.

A night of drinking can easily turn sour as alcoholic drinks are consumed; this can easily be escalated when personal issues are present in the life of someone who begins to drink.  If you or someone close to you has been involved in an altercation, or are being charged with assault or battery as a result of a night out on the town, call the law offices of Reeves, Aiken & Hightower, LLP.  For a consultation call 803-548-4444, or toll free at 877-374-5999.
