A Springfield man is facing charges after he allegedly threw a television at a woman he knows earlier this week.
Aaron Moten, 41, has been charged with domestic violence. He’s expected to appear in the Clark County Municipal Court at 10:30 a.m. today.
Springfield Police Division officers were called to a home in the 400 block of North Belmont Avenue at about 10:20 p.m. Monday night about a possible domestic incident, according to a police report.
Upon arrival, officers immediately noticed a woman at the home had a large bump on her forehead and smalls cut above her right eye and on her right shoulder, the report said. The woman told police she and Moten began fighting when he arrived home from work. He then allegedly began throwing things, including a flat screen TV that bounced off of the wall, hitting her in the head and the shoulder. The woman told police she lost consciousness for a few minutes as Moten allegedly continued to throw things in another room before leaving the home, the report said.
The woman was taken to Springfield Regional Medical Center by family. As officers were speaking with the woman at the hospital, Moten allegedly called her several times and threatened to shoot up her family’s home, the report said.
A warrant was filed for Moten’s arrest and he was taken into custody at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to jail records.
Moten was indicted by the Clark County Grand Jury on multiple charges in December, including trafficking in cocaine, trafficking in heroin, possession of cocaine, possession of heroin, aggravated trafficking in drugs, aggravated possession of drugs.
