A 34-year-old Sulphur Springs man was accused of assaulting his girlfriend Monday night, according to arrest reports.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched at 8:50 p.m. May 17, 2021, to a disturbance at a County Road 4759 residence. A verbal altercation between Robert Cordale Finnie and his girlfriend reportedly escalated, with Finnie assaulting her by “headbutting her” in the head and pushing her to the ground. This caused visible injuries, HCSO Sgt. Scott Davis and Deputy Aaron Chaney alleged in arrest reports.
Finnie had reportedly left the residence prior to deputies’ arrival, but was located pulling into a driveway not too far away on FM 2285. Finnie was taken into custody at 9:35 p.m. Monday for assaulting his girlfriend. A records check showed the 34-year-old Sulphur Springs man to have a previous family violence assault conviction, enhancing to a felony offense the assault charge he was booked into jail on late Monday night.
Finnie remained in Hopkins County jail Tuesday night, May 18, 2021, in lieu of the $25,000 bond set on the third-degree felony assault of a family or household member with a previous conviction charge.
