|State Police in Gilmer County have charged a Grantsville resident with assault, the charge was filed Monday in Magistrate Carol Wolfe's court.|
Sr. Trooper J. R. Brewer, according to a criminal complaint, says Christopher Todd Smith, 37, allegedly committed assault on his girlfriend, Kelli Lawson.
Brewer says "Mary Ann Waters (drove) to the West Virginia State Police detachment parking lot with the other victim, passenger Kelli Nicole Lawson," identified as a girlfriend of Smith.
Officer Brewer says Smith also drove onto the parking lot.
Both he and Kelli Lawson exited their vehicles, "screaming and trying to get into the office."
"Mary Ann Waters stated while she was stopped at a red light in Glenville, the accused approached her vehicle quickly and attempted to open the door, which made the victim fear for her safety," says the complaint.
"Kelli Lawson...advised this officer that she was scared and felt intimidated when the accused tried to get into the vehicle," Brewer said.
The assault charge is a misdemeanor.
