Success - Article sent! close

An Indianapolis man who authorities say slammed another man's head to the ground following a minor altercation earlier this week faces charges of aggravated battery resulting in great bodily harm.

Cook County Judge Jill Cerone Marisie on Thursday set bail at $100,000 for Donavan J. Williams, 23, whose girlfriend previously had a disagreement with the injured man, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Moe Ahmad.

Witnesses say Williams approached the other man from behind, lifted him off his feet and slammed him head first into the asphalt in a parking lot located in the 1900 block of Arlington Heights Road, Ahmad said.

The man suffered a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain and a broken toe, and spent three days in the intensive care unit at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, Ahmad said.

Two witnesses later picked Williams out of a lineup.

Williams next appears in court on May 17.
