Felony Assault Amended to Disorderly Conduct

Clive, Polk County, Iowa.  Felony Assault charge amended to Disorderly Conduct following taking statements of the complaining witness and friends.  The accusations arose out of an altercation at a bar.  Questioning of the witnesses showed that both the complaining witness and her friends were intoxicated and harassing GRL Law's client.  Ultimately, a physical confrontation broke out but due to inconsistent stories of witnesses, the prosecution could not establish that GRL Law's client committed an assault.
