Man charged after tickle fight gets violent causes scene in court
CINCINNATI, Ohio (WKRC) - Some drama played out inside a Hamilton County courtroom Thursday.
Daniel Smith was charged with domestic violence after reportedly punching his girlfriend in the face and breaking her jaw.
The incident apparently happened after a tickle fight that turned violent. Smith's girlfriend got angry during the tickling and she slapped him. Smith then allegedly punched her three times and broke her jaw in two places.
As part of the domestic violence charge, he needed to sign a protection order promising to stay away from her, and Smith didn't appear happy to be in court. When guards tried to take his handcuffs off, he told them that was not a good idea.
He started pulling away from deputies, who then escorted him from the courtroom.
