Howard man facing charges after alleged fight

A Howard man was charged with simple assault and harassment on his birthday, after police say a verbal altercation turned physical on Sunday.

According to court documents, Charles Harter, 43, grabbed a woman by her hair and then shoved her against a wall.

Per court records, the woman sustained injuries during the fight.

Harter maintains that he did not touch the woman, according to the affidavit, but was arrested and is facing charges of simple assault, a misdemeanor, and harassment.

Harter was unable to post bail, which was set by District Judge Steven Lachman at $10,000.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
