Drug suspect faces new charge of assaultAugust 22,2013WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — A Springfield man awaiting trial on heroin-dealing charges was back in court this week after police said he choked a teenage girl.
Dylan Davis, 21, pleaded innocent Tuesday in White River Junction criminal court to domestic assault and interference with access to emergency services for the incident Monday.
He also denied three more charges from an unrelated incident in June — operating a car without the owner’s consent, gross negligent operation and violating his conditions of release. Davis was ordered by the court not to contact or harass the girl, then was held for lack of $2,500 bail.
Last fall Davis pleaded innocent to three felony counts alleging he repeatedly sold heroin to police informants. He was accused of making deliveries on his bicycle or conducting sales from his bedroom in his parent’s house in Springfield.
It was at that house where police said Davis became irate Monday when he could not find some of his money and accused the teenage girl of not helping him to find it, according to a police affidavit. Family members and a friend who witnessed the incident told police that Davis flipped over a table and threw the telephone against a picture frame, breaking the phone, before pushing the girl onto a couch and choking her.MORE IN This Just In
