    "Early Sunday morning, an Auburn University student assaulted Lennie Hartzog, a local Lyft driver, after driving him home from downtown Auburn. Upon arriving at his destination, he refused to get out of her vehicle, so she called 911. She was instructed to get out of her car, open his door and ask him to exit her vehicle. When she did, he assaulted her causing multiple injuries to her face, shoulder, arm, and hands. The suspect was arrested on felony assault charges,"

    I'm not easily suprised or shocked. I've seen and heard every kind of stupid. Hopefully the appropriate person loses their job.

    Well, you just don't drive around Auburn University in a red car yelling "Roll Tide!!!"

    Alcohol will cause that student his freedom and education for the next couple of years along with restitution and will also give Lennie a nice six figure settlement from Lyft.

    Terrible. Driving after midnight in a college town is not a good idea.

    Guy apparently has more mother issues than Norman Bates if an older woman waking him up (out of a drunken/drug induced stupor?) sets him off into a violent rage. I wonder if he even remembers pummeling this poor woman? Terrible.

  10. (He’s probably going to get house arrest/probation for a first offense. He will plea down misdemeanor charges and get a probation/house arrest.





    The worst hood pax have ever done is screwed me over not paid a few times. That and left drugs in the car.

    All my violent incidents have involved alchohol.



    Yuppies.

    He better hope to God he can plea it to a misdemeanor. A felony nowadays ruins you for the rest of your life.

    AUBURN, Ala. (WRBL) - An Auburn Lyft driver is recovering from serious injuries after her attorney tells News 3 she was beaten by an Auburn University student after she drove him home from downtown Auburn early Sunday night. [​IMG]

    Auburn police confirm to News 3, 20-year-old Jess Erwin Ralston of Auburn was arrested on Monday, September 24th and charged with assault third degree. Police say on Sunday, September 23, 2018, at approximately 1:00 a.m. APD Officers responded to a report of an assault in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 200 block of W. Longleaf Drive. [​IMG]

    Police say a 58-year-old female from Auburn was assaulted by a male, later identified as Ralston. The victim sustained physical injuries to her face and arm and was transported by ambulance to EAMC for treatment. Monday, September 24th Officers obtained a warrant for Ralston's arrest charging him with assault third degree; he was located, taken into custody and transported to the Lee County Jail.

    Attorney Trip Walton has identified the woman who was assaulted as 58-year-old Lennie Hartzog. Walton says Hartzog is a local Lyft driver who works several other jobs to make ends meet. Walton says early Sunday morning Hartzog was driving Ralston home from downtown Auburn when he says the Auburn University student assaulted her.[​IMG]

    "Early Sunday morning, an Auburn University student assaulted Lennie Hartzog, a local Lyft driver, after driving him home from downtown Auburn. Upon arriving at his destination, he refused to get out of her vehicle, so she called 911. She was instructed to get out of her car, open his door and ask him to exit her vehicle. When she did, he assaulted her causing multiple injuries to her face, shoulder, arm, and hands. The suspect was arrested on felony assault charges," Walton told News 3.

    Ms. Hartzog is being represented by Walton and Catherine Moncus of Walton Law Firm, P.C. in Auburn, Alabama. News 3 is arranging an interview with Ms. Harzog about the incident.

    Meanwhile, Auburn police tell News 3 the case remains under investigation, and felony assault charges are possible, depending on the medical determination of the severity of the victim's injuries.

    Just in case nobody really noticed, the above is stating quite clearly that the pax assaulted the driver after the pax drove the driver home.

    I mean, if we're not seeing hoax stories, we're seeing stories where the author of the article has no business writing an article.

    Unless of course, the student is one "at risk" then they only get in school suspension. And good luck with collecting anything from James Rivers Insurance company, last I heard they have over 26K law suits from not paying claims. There was a driver here in KC that was attacked couple years ago, his car was totaled and he spent weekend in hospital. NADA, not a penny.

  19. Boy you dropped the soap..

    "No i didn't"

    "Yes.. you did"

    Looks like felony assault to me to...

    Problem is some ADA is going to offer reduced charges for a guilty plea and not drag it out for months without a guarantee of this little prick losing in court.
