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!

Alexander, admitted that he’d been in a domestic argument but denied punching anyone during the incident.

“I did not in no way, form or fashion ball my fist or kick or hit her in any kind of way.” — Dominique Alexander

“I did not in no way, form or fashion ball my fist or kick or hit her in any kind of way,” Alexander told the Observer on Wednesday. “I believe that, if that was the case and there was truth and evidence that I would be in jail right now.”

Alexander say’s Hood is taking advantage of what he called a private matter.

“As a fellow activist, I find it very alarming that Jeff Hood decided to exploit my private life in a way without even communicating with me regarding it,” Alexander said. “I find it very deceiving and very misleading. I feel like this is a private matter that has two sides of every story.”
