An Iowa City man was charged with assault after allegedly punching a woman in the head.

Neil Sheldon, 46, 1031 E. College St., was charged Feb. 25 with assault causing bodily injury.

According to a police report, officers were dispatched to a residence at 1100 Arthur St. for a fight in progress.

On the scene, a woman told police she had been struck in the head.

Sheldon told police the woman was angry at him because he didn’t bring her the narcotics she sent him to buy, and she went out of control with anger, punching walls.

The defendant said he punched the woman in the head to make her stop, the report said.

Assault causing bodily injury is a serious misdemeanor, generally punishable by up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of $1,875.
