26-year-old Russell Chase Hawkins is charged with the domestic assault of his girlfriend, Evely Chavez, after a night out at a downtown Bar on June 19. The two were reportedly arguing at the bar when things escalated when Chase placed his hand around her throat and grabbed her, leaving a small red mark observed by police. She then fled the bar and took a rideshare back to her residence, and called police. Officers then spoke with Hawkins, who stated it was only a verbal argument and she may have a mark on her next from him picking her up, but it “was not in a malicious way.” He further added that he believed the two were having a good night.
