Three people were arrested on assault or related charges: a 28-year-old Sulphur Springs man accused of pushing his girlfriend down stairs Monday afternoon, a 24-year-old Sulphur Springs woman involved in a disturbance with her mother’s boyfriend Sunday evening and a 34-year-old Sulphur Springs man was returned to jail after his bond was revoked on an assault charge, according to police and sheriff’s reports.

Assault Of Mom’s Beau

Sulphur Springs Police responded at 5:30 p.m. June 20 on Peach Street, where a disturbance was reported. Upon arrival, the policeman contacted two people present, a 24-year-old woman and her mother’s boyfriend, who both reside at the address.

The woman, with the officer present, allegedly attempted to strike her mother’s boyfriend. The arresting officer reported grabbing the woman’s arm to prevent her from assaulting her mom’s beau.

However, based on her behavior, she was arrested on a Class C misdemeanor assault charge at 5:42 p.m. and was booked into jail at 6 p.m., the SSPD officer noted in arrest reports. She was released from jail on the charge on Monday, Nov. 21, 2021.

Pushed Partner

Sulphur Springs police responded to an assault reported on East Industrial Drive at 3:24 p.m. Monday. They located the alleged suspect in the lobby of the motel.

The 28-year-old Sulphur Springs man claims the woman began to walk toward the staircase as she left their room. He told deputies he went after her and, when she began to fall down the stairs, he tried to catch her.

Police then spoke with the man’s girlfriend. She alleges he got mad at her when she tried to go outside to roll up her vehicle windows to prevent the rain from the incoming storm from soaking its interior. She admitted he did follow her to the stairs, but then pushed her. She alleges she fell down the stairs, sustaining a scratch she pointed to on one arm as a result.

The 28-year-old Sulphur Springs man was taken into custody at 3:48 p.m. June 21 by police on an assault causing bodily injury. He remained in Hopkins County jail Tuesday, June 22, 2021; bond was set at $2,000 on the Class A misdemeanor assault charge.

Felony Arrest

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Elijah Fite took Robert Cordale Finnie into custody on a warrant Monday. The 34-year-old Sulphur Springs man was booked into and remained in Hopkins County jail Tuesday, June 22, for not having sufficient bond on a felony assault of a family or household member with previous conviction charge.

Finnie was arrested on the original assault charge on May 17, 2021, for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend by “headbutting her” in the head and pushing her to the ground, causing visible injuries. He remained in Hopkins County jail until his release May 20 on a $25,000 bond on the felony charge.

He remained in the county jail Tuesday, June 22, on Monday’s charge; his new bond was double the original amount set in the case.
