Our client and his longtime live-in girlfriend got into a shouting match after a late night of partying. The girlfriend ended up calling the police to make our client leave the residence. Officers got to the residence and woke our client up, who was asleep in a downstairs bedroom. Officers ultimately made our client leave the residence. As he gathered his belongings, the argument continued. On his way out the door, the client is alleged by the officer to have “extended his right fist, striking girlfriend in the right eye.”
After speaking with the client and reviewing the police body cam video of the incident, it became immediately apparent that when the client was leaving the residence, he stuck out his right hand and was in the process of shooting the girlfriend the international symbol “The Bird”, he accidently hit her in the nose. As the complaining witness had no visible injury and due to the apparent accidental nature of the act, all charges were dismissed. Client walked out of the courtroom a free man without the stigma of a domestic violence conviction.
