Black Woman Beaten By White Man Is Charged For Hitting Man’s Truck

Dallas police charged L’Daijohnique Lee with felony criminal mischief for damaging the man’s pickup truck after he punched her in March, Deputy Chief Thomas Castro confirmed in a news conference (video below).

Castro said Lee admitted to causing the damage, which was estimated to be just over $3,000, reports WFAA:

We understand that some people are upset. It’s not the intention of the Dallas Police Department to pick one side or the other. We simply had information that was provided to us on a criminal offense. We thoroughly investigated that offense. We took the action that was taken today.

Lee’s attorney, Lee Merritt, tweeted about the criminal mischief charge:

The man accused of attacking Lee, Austin Shuffield, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawfully carrying a weapon.
