A 28-year-old Carroll man swore at a woman early Saturday morning and tossed a lit cigarette into her mouth, according to court records.
Daniel Austin Heinen was arrested for assault for the 12:49 a.m. incident at the Carroll Community Estates mobile home park, 914 U.S. Highway 30 East. He pleaded guilty and was fined $60, court records show.
Heinen was in the process of retrieving his property at the time of the assault, according to court records. Several people witnessed it.
“The cigarette went into the victim’s mouth, causing burns on the right side of her tongue and the back of her throat,” a criminal complaint says.
Heinen left the area after the attack but later was located by a police officer and arrested.
