Aggravated assault charge stems from incident with skateboard

Serious situations can stem from misunderstandings or from someone providing false information. When a person is accused of a serious crime, like assault, it is important that the information regarding the event is correct. In many cases, the accused party often needs to give his or her side of the event in court.

One man in Florida will likely want to prepare his version of events after recently being charged. Reports stated that the man approached another man who was carrying out recyclables from his home. For an unclear reason, the second man claims that the first man went and got a wooden skateboard before approaching the second man again. The second man then stated that the first man hit him in the face several times with the skateboard and claims that he was hit again even after being on the ground.

The alleged victim stated that he suffered a concussion and possible broken nose in the event. Authorities were apparently called to the scene, and while talking with police, the man stated that the second man attempted to get the skateboard and struck himself in the face. Nonetheless, the man was taken into custody and is currently facing charges for aggravated assault. At the time of the report, he was still in custody on a $10,000 bail.

As part of the criminal justice system, any person accused of a crime has the ability to create and present a defense to criminal allegations if he or she wishes to do so. The man accused in this Florida assault case will undoubtedly want to make sure that he understands his defense options before moving forward. Building a meaningful defense may help him work toward agreeable outcomes.
