RACINE — A Caledonia man is facing charges after allegedly attacking his girlfriend and breaking her tooth.
Dewey N. Honor III, 38, of the 3200 block of Packer Drive, is charged with felony substantial battery and misdemeanor disorderly conduct, both charged as a repeat offender.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Sept. 30, a Racine Police officer was dispatched to the 2600 block of Cottonwood Court for a report of a man and woman fighting.
A witness told police she and her friends had been drinking all day when Honor began attacking his girlfriend. The girlfriend said everyone was sitting around drinking and having a good time when Honor got upset because she was reportedly not paying enough attention to him.
She said he threw a beer can at her, and she told him not to do it again. Honor then allegedly grabbed her by the hair and threw her around the room. One person tried separating the two, but Honor reportedly punched his girlfriend in the face about 10 times, breaking one of her teeth.
The officer saw that the girlfriend’s middle left tooth was broken off at the base, there was dried blood on her lips and her face was swollen on the left side. Another witness, who was sleeping in another room, confirmed Honor’s girlfriend’s story.
Although Honor was charged for the reported attack in October, he did not appear in court until Wednesday.
As of Wednesday afternoon, Honor was being held on a $500 cash bond. His next appearance is a preliminary hearing on March 14 at the Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave.
