Glass tirade nets 150 days
Placeholder Image

A man who struck his girlfriend and nearly flung her 5-year-old daughter onto the pavement as he sped away in anger has been given 150 days in jail.
The angry man, Keyvin Lanier Glass, 26, entered guilty pleas before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to charges of domestic assault, reckless endangerment with a motor vehicle, evading arrest on foot, vandalism and fourth-offense driving on a revoked license. He was directed to serve 150 days of a three-year sentence, pay $50 plus costs, enter the batterer’s intervention program and perform 25 hours public service work. His sentence will be served in addition to a case he has pending in neighboring Coffee County.
The charges were brought after he struck his girlfriend several times in the head with his fists during an argument. The woman was sitting next to her 5-year-old daughter who was struck during the attack either by Glass’ fists or by her mother’s head being knocked into the child’s face.
Later in the day, after the assault, the victim said she demanded to be let out of her car after Glass began driving the vehicle recklessly.
“I was attempting to unbuckle my daughter from the seatbelt when he sped away at a high rate of speed almost pulling my child out onto the roadway,” the victim said to the judicial commissioner in swearing out the warrant against her boyfriend.
It was at that point, McMinnville Police officer Aaron Roberts fell in behind the suspect’s vehicle near an off-ramp on Highway 55.
“He sped past two vehicles on a double yellow line at a high rate of speed,” Roberts recalled after trying to pull him over. “He entered a private driveway on Vervilla Road and jumped from the vehicle trying to evade capture.”
Glass was caught by police. It was then discovered he had been caught in three different counties in less than a year while driving on a revoked license.
The angry suspect kicked the rear door of the patrol car while in transit to jail causing an estimated $500 in damage.
