Decatur man gets punched after trying to stop two guys having sex in driveway


DECATUR — Decatur police said a man who was trying to stop two guys from having sex in a parked car was punched in the face on Saturday.

The Decatur Herald & Review reported that the incident happened in Hyde Park Court on the south edge of Decatur off of U.S. 51 just before 3:30 a.m. Police officer Jeremy williams said the victim, described as a friend of the guy who punched him, had been asked to stop the the party in the car by the driveway’s owner.

From the Herald & Review:

“…The homeowner of the residence did not like the fact that this was occurring in his driveway and advised (the victim) to notify his (friend, and the friend’s partner) to leave the property,” Williams said.

Williams said the 21-year-old assailant then “became irate” before punching the victim in the head four times, leaving him with redness, swelling and bruising injuries police recorded with photographs.

The man was booked on a preliminary charge of battery and is free after posting $1,000 bond.

Moral of the story: get a room.
