Man faces prison time for bar fight

Published 9:13am Thursday, October 31, 2013

An Ironton man is facing eight years in prison for allegedly punching a bartender in the face.

Daniel Carlisle, 36, of 726 S. Ninth St., was arraigned Wednesday on a second-degree count of felonious assault.

The charge stems from a Sept. 29 incident at Shenanigan’s on South Third Street. According to a police report, the bartender was trying to break up a fight and Carlisle allegedly hit the bartender in the jaw.

The man allegedly fled the scene before police arrived.

Carlisle pleaded not guilty to the charge through his attorney Gene Meadows, who said the man turned himself into authorities when he learned there was a charge against him.

Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Mike Gleichauf recommended bond be set at $50,000 cash or surety. Meadows suggested bond remain at $25,000 as set in a lower court.

Judge D. Scott Bowling set bond at $25,000 cash or surety plus $25,000 own-recognizance. A pretrial was set for Nov. 13.

In other cases:

• Rashad Carter, 21, of 3012 Bath Ave., Ashland, Ky., was arraigned on two fourth-degree and one fifth-degree counts of trafficking in crack cocaine, as well as a fourth-degree count of trafficking in heroin, to which he pleaded not guilty.

Gleichauf asked for a $50,000 bond to be set.

Tyler Smith, attorney for Carter, asked for an OR bond and home monitoring.

Bowling set bond at $25,000 OR and GPS monitoring and a pretrial for Nov. 20.

• Aaron Adkins, 26, of 111 A. Fairview Drive, South Point, pleaded guilty to a fifth-degree count of breaking and entering.

Bowling sentenced the man to four years community control sanctions, STAR, $1,305 restitution and 200 hours community service. A prison sentence of 11 months was reserved if Adkins violates his CCS orders.

• Shane Lemley, 40, of 597 County Road 775, Proctorville, pleaded guilty to a fifth-degree count of theft from the elderly. Bowling set sentencing for Nov. 13 and modified the man’s bond to $10,000 OR.

• David Malanowski, 32, of 266 Forest Road, Huntington, W.Va., admitted CCS violations of not reporting to the adult probation department. Bowling sentenced the man to seven months in prison.

• Noah Lambert, 33, of 7302 Jordan Drive, Ashland, Ky., was arraigned on a fifth-degree charge of escape, to which he pleaded not guilty.

According to Gleichauf, the man was working on Judge O. Clark Collins’ community service program when he left the work detail without permission.

“We believe he is a flight risk,” Gleichauf said, recommending a $25,000 cash or surety bond be set.

Warren Morford, attorney for Lambert, asked bond remain at $5,000, which was set in a lower court.

Bowling continued the $5,000 bond and added a $10,000 OR bond. A pretrial was set on Nov. 6.

• Bobby Dement, 37, of 386 Township Road 88, Proctorville, was sentenced to six months in prison for a fifth-degree count of breaking and entering, to which he previously pleaded guilty.
