Cracker Barrel beatdown redneck facing felony charges
Felony charges for Cracker Barrel assault suspect
A man charged with attacking an Army reservist outside a Clayton County Cracker Barrel is back in jail and facing felony charges.
Morrow police arrested Troy Dale West of Poulan after reviewing a video surveillance tape and talking to customers. He was charged with battery, disorderly conduct and cruelty to children.
Troy Dale West Jr., 47, was indicted Wednesday on charges of aggravated assault, false imprisonment, first degree cruelty to children, two counts of battery and two counts of disorderly conduct, Clayton County District Attorney Tracy Graham Lawson said.
Clayton County Superior Court Judge Geronda V. Carter issued a warrant for West Wednesday morning and then denied him bond.
West is charged with beating and kicking Tashawnea Hill as she walked out of the Morrow restaurant on Sept. 9. Hill’s 7-year-old daughter watched as West assaulted her mother while yelling racial slurs, police said.
The attack occurred as Hill and her daughter were leaving the restaurant and West was walking inside. Hill told West to be careful after the door almost hit her child, police said.
West became enraged and then attacked the woman, Morrow police Capt. James Callaway said.
“She kept saying, ‘Sir, I’m a United States soldier, don’t do this, ‘ “ he said.
The FBI is also investigating the attack as a possible hate crime.</em>
