JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) – A Johnson City man is being charged after police say he pushed a woman from a moving vehicle on North Roan Street on Tuesday.
According to a release from the Johnson City Police Department, officers responded to West Oakland Avenue and North Roan Street on Tuesday night around 6:50 p.m. after being told about a woman being pushed out of a moving vehicle.
The release says that an investigation revealed the victim had been in a fight with her boyfriend, 43-year-old Glenn K. Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald had allegedly already struck her multiple times with his fist before pushing her out of the vehicle.

A warrant was obtained by JCPD for Fitzgerald and he was located at his home on Thursday.
Fitzgerald was arrested and charged with aggravated domestic assault.
He was transported to the Washington County Detention Center, where he is being held on a $50,000 bond.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
