The woman and Reynolds were driving home from a bar early Saturday night when he asked her to drive down East Main Street in order for them to pick up fast food. He became upset when he discovered some of the restaurants nearby were closed and the woman had then decided to drive home. Reynolds began punching the car as she parked on Kenton Street.
