WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) — A Washington County, Tennessee school board member accused of assaulting his former girlfriend is due in court today.
David Hammond is charged with domestic assault and violating a protection order.
In March, police arrived at a home on Beechnut St. in regards to a possible assault.
Hammond was not at the home when police arrived, but his ex-girlfriend told police Hammond was intoxicated and had assaulted her during an argument.
Hammond was arrested the following day at Restore Community Church.
His hearing is set for 9:00 Wednesday morning.
Hammond had previously been charged with domestic violence in 2015, but the charge was dismissed in 2016.
