A boyfriend who strayed for a week only to come home speaking to invisible people has been charged with felony assault for attacking his girlfriend during his alleged drug-induced hallucinations.
The suspect, Buck Williams, 34, has been indicted on charges of aggravated assault and assault. His indictment comes after he returned home on Hardaway Street.
“After being gone for six days and appearing to be under the influence of drugs, talking to unseen persons in the next room, he became abusive,” the victim swore in her warrant against her live-in boyfriend. “He stepped on her foot, grinding her foot into the ground and causing injury to her foot.”
The woman said Williams continued his assault a while later while still acting like he was on drugs.
“He grabbed her by the hair, placing her in a choke hold, thereby cutting off her ability to breath,” the judicial commissioner wrote in the felony warrant.
Under state law, it is felony assault to place a person into a choke hold with one’s arm, hand or ligature and inhibit their breathing.
