A Greenbrier County man is in jail after an alleged altercation with his girlfriend that occurred on Wednesday, November 18. John Darrick Quick, 31, of Circle Drive in White Sulphur Springs, is facing charges of domestic battery and malicious assault.
On the evening of Wednesday, November 18, officers were dispatched to the Greenbrier Valley Medical Center in response to a female patient who had been the victim of an alleged domestic altercation. According to the criminal complaint, the victim advised officers that the altercation had occurred between her and her boyfriend, John Darrick Quick. The victim further advised officers that Quick had pushed her, and struck her in the face.
The complaint states that the victim lost consciousness after the blow. When she awoke, she found herself to be bleeding and in extreme pain. She noticed her jaw felt “out of place,” and that Quick had left the residence.
The victim informed officers that the argument began after Quick had allegedly become intoxicated. The complaint also indicates that there were several witnesses to the altercation; the victim’s mother, as well as a neighbor. The victim was later transported from GVMC to the Charleston Area Medical Center for surgery to repair the apparent broken-jaw she had suffered.
According to the criminal complaint, officers located Quick walking down the road approximately 200 yards from the victim’s residence. Quick was placed under arrest, and taken to the Rupert Sheriff’s office for processing. The complaint states that officers were unable to effectively communicate with Quick due to his high-level of intoxication.
John Darrick Quick is being held at Southern Regional Jail. Bail is set at $6,000 cash or surety.
