According to charging documents, when police arrived to the scene, the alleged victim said he was hit multiple times and strangled. He and Shaw had been arguing, then Shaw grabbed him by the throat with two hands, choking him for about five seconds, the documents state. He said he was then hit the face with open and closed hands multiple times.
The man said he attempted to leave the vicinity but Shaw choked him with two hands again and pushed up against a wall, according to charging documents, then he was hit in the face and neck with open and closed hand again.
