A Nacogdoches man is charged with a second-degree felony for allegedly attacking another man with a beer bottle on July 5.

Ivan Dominguez, 29, was booked into the county jail on a charge of aggravated assaulted with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony, for his alleged role in an altercation the day after Independence Day.

Officers were dispatched to a local hospital July 5 when they received a report of a person with “numerous cuts and gashed on the left side and back of his head,” according to the warrant filed against Dominguez.

The victim told police he and Dominugez were at a home in the 500 block of Ridgewood Drive that evening when a fight broke out and Dominguez attacked him, the affidavit states.

“(The victim) later told detectives that the fight was over silly things, such as jokes and such, but that … Dominguez … reacted poorly,” according to the warrant.

Dominguez allegedly hit the victim with a beer bottle, which broke, and then “continued to strike him several times with the jagged and shattered remnants of the bottle.” Dominguez allegedly grabbed a butcher knife from a nearby barbecue pit and threatened that he was going to “finish him” before being chased off the property by the homeowner.

“Dominguez admitted to the fight and his involvement, but minimized his actions, which did not coincide with the evidence or the witness statements,” according to the warrant.

If convicted of the offense, Dominguez could be sentenced to between two and 20 years incarceration and up to $10,000 in fines.
