The Briceville man who allegedly assaulted his girlfriend, who wanted to go to the doctor to see if she is pregnant, turned himself in at the jail on Tuesday, authorities said.
Aaron Eugene Seiber, 25, remained jailed at the Anderson County Detention Facility in Clinton on Sunday afternoon. He has been charged with aggravated assault, and his bond has been set at $50,000.
Seiber is accused of hitting his 21-year-old girlfriend in the stomach and choking her after she asked if she should go to the doctor to see if she was pregnant. The Clinton woman reported that Seiber allegedly swung a hammer at her, choked her, and struck her in the stomach.
The woman told deputies that the attack happened at Seiber’s home near Rocky Top early Saturday morning, November 1, and that she intended to seek an order of protection against him.
