According to DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) A brutal assault over parking in Deep Ellum caught on-camera lead to the arrest of a bartender named Austin Shuffield, according to an arrest warrant.

Witnesses watched in horror as Shuffield attacked the 24-year-old victim Wednesday night.

It all started, according to Dallas police, when the woman stopped after driving the wrong way down Elm Street. That’s when Shuffield, 30, got out of his truck to ask her to move out of his way because she was blocking the parking lot exit.

When he approached, a dispute followed, which witnesses saw and recorded.

The video shows Shuffield and the victim in the heated argument. At one point, Shuffield pulls out what appears to be a gun and holds it behind his back. After more words are exchanged, he smacks the woman’s cell phone out of her hand as she was dialing 911. She reacts by punching him.

Shuffield responds by reaching back, taking a boxer’s stance and punching her squarely in the jaw. The video shows Shuffield then hitting her violently four more times in the face and head.

The woman was crouched over, cradling her head as Shuffield beat her. Shuffield then kicks her cell phone violently on the ground.

Police were called an arrested Shuffield for aggravated assault causing injury, interference with an emergency call and public intoxication.

Owner of the High and Tight Barbershop and Speakeasy, Braxton Martin said Shuffield worked there as a bartender but was fired Thursday afternoon.

“From the video itself it shows an aggravated assault to our eyes. That is something needs to be dealt with quickly and swiftly and that’s what we’re trying to do and make sure it’s handled properly,” said Martin.

CBS 11 News cannot confirm who the victim is or how badly she was injured.
 
Other Deep Ellum businesses owners said Shuffield’s behavior — especially from someone who works there — is the last thing the neighborhood needs or wants.

    Why isn’t he charged with a hate crime? His Facebook shows he’s a racist bigot! If this was her boyfriend a black man, I bet he’ll have a worst charge than this and it’s recorded!

I am extremely proud of my baby brother, Brandt, for accepting this award of ethical courage from the Center for Law Enforcement Ethics. This award presented an opportunity to implore this institution and others to encourage diverse leadership that can model inclusion and restraint. To quote Brandt, “I ask that you remember my brother (Botham), my example of ethical leadership, a young black male that was perceived as a threat by one of your own. And when you remember him, I want you to ask yourself, what are you doing to ensure there will be no other families like mine – no other little brothers that have to model ethical leadership in forgiveness of a cop whose lack of training and discipline caused them to carelessly take the life of another”. #BeLikeBo #Iammybrotherskeeper #itsonus #BothamJean #Bothamshemjean #letitrise

According to NBCDFW During his acceptance speech Tuesday, Jean that he never meant for his words to Guyger to be heard worldwide, but that he thought after the verdict and sentencing she needed to be forgiven and that, similarly, he needed to offer that forgiveness.

“I never intended for the statement that I made to the person who murdered my brother to receive such international recognition,” Jean said. “After being found guilty by a jury of her peers, sentenced under the law, Miss Guyger needed to be forgiven and I needed to be free from the burden of unforgiveness.” Read More Here
