Woman Maced, Nearly Run Over

KSAL StaffMarch 29, 2016

A couple of incidents in which a woman was sprayed in the face with mace, and nearly run over with a car, prompted the arrest of a Salina man on Monday.

Police Captain Mike Sweeney says that 25-year-old Justin Hatton was arguing with a female acquaintance Monday afternoon at around 1:30, in the 800 Block of Sherman.

According to Sweeney, as the woman got in a car to leave Hatton got in as well. During a struggle he allegedly bit her on the shoulder, leaving a bite mark. He then pushed her partially out of the car as it was moving. The woman ended up falling out onto the ground, and was nearly run over.

Hatton is also alleged to have sprayed the woman in the face with mace, and broke her cell phone, during an altercation on Saturday.

Hatton was located in Lincoln County later in the day on Monday, and transported back to Salina. He was booked into the Saline County jail on charges that could include aggravated battery, two counts of domestic violence battery, and one count of criminal damage to property.
