The complainant advised the two suspects got into a truck and drove away. The truck matching the description was located, and the male was identified as Gregory St. Meyers. St. Meyers advised everything was OK, but the female passenger shook her head no, so she was advised to exit the vehicle to talk privately with the officer about her side of the story. She said that St. Meyers is her biological grandfather, and as they came out of the store he demanded she give him the keys because he was going to drive. When she went to open the driver side door, St. Meyers came after her swinging, hitting her in the side of the neck and face. It was observed she did have fresh marks on the right side of her neck. She decided to press charges. St. Meyers was unsure about how the incident happened and could not remember who hit who first and thought maybe the victim had pushed him first to which the victim advised she had pushed him because he had balled a fist and was about to punch her as an attempt to not get hit. St. Meyers was found to have an active Indiana Driver’s license suspension for a traffic violation, and it was found the license plate on the rear of the vehicle belonged to a Chevy Equinox, not the truck on hand. He was charged with assault, driving under suspension, and fictitious plates.
