CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A 43-year-old West Ashley man is accused of ripping off a car boot from from a vehicle and throwing it at a parking enforcement officer in downtown Charleston.
The Charleston Police Department charged Kirk Williams McMullan with assault on a police officer.
McMullan's charge stems from an incident on March 13 when police responded to the area of Rutledge Avenue and Tradd Street for an assault.
The parking enforcement officer said the incident started when the suspect approached her as she was attempting to boot a vehicle.
The victim said the suspect became belligerent and angry when he saw her booting a co-worker's vehicle.
According to the victim, the suspect grabbed the boot, ripped it off the wheel and threw it at the victim.
The victim told police that the boot struck her left shin causing pain.
A police report states after the suspect struck the victim, he got into a black Jaguar and drove away.
A co-worker on the job site said that the suspect's name was "Curt" but did not know his last name, police officials say.
