A man will serve 45 days in jail after he threw his girlfriend out of his car before hitting and stomping her.
The man, Charles Richard Anderson Jr., 27, entered guilty pleas before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to charges of domestic assault and driving on a revoked license. He was directed to serve 45 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence, perform 24 hours public service work and pay $50 plus costs.
He was also instructed to undergo the batterer intervention course and must go for mental health treatment. He was warned not to contact the victim.
His jail time comes after police were dispatched to a location off Shangri-La Lane in response to a woman who had been left on the side of the road. When lawmen arrived they found the woman suffering from injuries.
“She said Charles Anderson had kicked her out of her car and hit her numerous times,” sheriff’s investigator Steven Carpenter said in his warrants against the defendant. “He also kicked her while she was on the ground.”
After throwing her out of her car, Anderson reportedly stole the 2014 Ford Focus that was valued at $16,694. The car was later found abandoned in Coffee County.
