A former mayoral candidate is accused of punching a woman repeatedly in the face on Christmas Eve, after a night of drinking.
The Capital reports the Baltimore woman filed an application for charges against Nevin Young, and a judge issued criminal summons Thursday. Young is charged with second-degree assault, a misdemeanor.
According to a police report, Young joined two women for drinks at restaurant Harry Browne's. Police wrote that Young got into a disagreement with one of the women as they were leaving and struck her.
Young declined to comment to the newspaper.
The Annapolis attorney unsuccessfully challenged then-incumbent Mike Pantelides in the 2017 Republican primary for mayor. He received 150 of more than 1,200 votes. He also unsuccessfully sought a judicial appointment to the Circuit Court earlier this year.
