Clarksville man trying to avoid confrontation is punched in front of police station, police say


Despite fleeing to a Howard County police station to avoid a fight, a 25-year-old Clarksville man got punched right outside the station, police said.

About 10: 30 p.m. Monday, two men got into an altercation at the Cherry Tree Shopping Center in Scaggsville, said police spokesman Sgt. Morris Carroll.

One of the men hopped into a car, driven by someone else, and sped next door to the Southern District police station, followed by the second man, Carroll said.

After both cars pulled onto the lot, one of the men punched the other through his open window, Carroll said. Off-duty police Officer Scott Magee intervened..

Police said Robert Lee Hobbs, 41, of Columbia was charged with second-degree aggravated assault.
