According to the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, the incident occurred when Debout engaged in a violent confrontation with his partner. An incident report details how Debout resorted to physical violence, kicking his girlfriend in the ribs and launching a series of punches to her face, resulting in significant injuries. In a further attempt to isolate his victim and hinder her ability to seek help, Debout forcibly took her phone to prevent her from calling emergency services.

The authorities have charged Debout with aggravated family offense, assault, and criminal mischief. The charges will be answered at a later date in Lyons Town Court.
