A 35-year-old Hood County man is facing multiple charges after a disturbance Thursday night in which he allegedly slugged two people at a residence on East Road, Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Johnny Rose said.

Cliffton James Ross, of the 4500 block of Village Court in Eastwood Village, fled in a vehicle when deputies arrived, according to Rose. The brief pursuit began on East Road and ended in the 4500 block of Village Court.

“Ross allegedly punched his ex-girlfriend in the head and punched (her) friend on the arm with his closed fist,” Rose said, noting that neither victim was seriously injured and did not receive medical treatment.

He is charged with two felonies – unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon (parole warrant) and evading arrest with a vehicle. His family violence assault charge, along with assault and driving with an invalid license, are misdemeanors.
