Asheville Man Faces Assault Charges After Shoving, Punching Girl

In Asheville, a man faces assault charges after social media videos appeared to show him shoving and punching a girl at the Asheville Mall.

According to WLOS, 51-year old David Steven Bell was arrested over the weekend on charges including assault on a female under the age of 12.

Videos on social media show a man believed to be Bell in a confrontation with a group of mostly teenagers. A girl is seen approaching the man, who responds by pushing her – then hitting her forcefully in the face, knocking her to the ground. 

Mark Rumsey grew up in Kansas and got his first radio job at age 17 in the town of Abilene, where he announced easy-listening music played from vinyl record albums.
