Man accused in Greenville of assault, DWI after alleged dispute
A 21-year-old Havelock, North Carolina, man was booked into the Pitt County Detention Center early Saturday on a string of allegations. Greenville Police claim that the man, who reportedly is a Cherry Point Marine, had an altercation with his girlfriend around 2:45 Saturday morning on Stancil Drive.
Police accuse the man of driving while impaired, hit and run with injury and a variety of assault charges after an alleged domestic disturbance in Greenville, North Carolina. News reports provide a few of the allegations against the man, but the details about the alleged events remain sketchy.
Police assert that the man’s girlfriend says that the Lance Corporal fought with her in Greenville and matters grew worse. The woman says that the Marine left after the dispute. As he was leaving, the 26-year-old woman claims that her boyfriend drove his car over her legs.
Witnesses to the alleged dispute say that the young man assaulted them when they tried to step in to stop the alleged dispute.
Greenville Police say that the woman was taken to Vidant Medical Center with leg injuries. Media reports do not indicate the woman’s condition at the hospital.
Police reportedly found the Havelock man sitting in his car in a parking lot. He was arrested on DWI and hit and run charges. Police also accuse the man of assault with a deadly weapon, assault on a female and two additional counts of simple assault. Sources say that the man was held in jail on a ,000 secured bond.
