Man charged with attacking girlfriend

A Jefferson City man charged with attacking his girlfriend in January 2013 has been placed on five years supervised probation.

Drew Fuller, 37, pleaded guilty to second-degree domestic assault. A second charge of second-degree domestic assault and a charge of armed criminal action were dismissed.

A Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement shows the incident occurred at a residence in the 600 block of Michigan Street.

The woman said she and Fuller had gotten into an argument and he grabbed her by the throat. He then removed a knife from his boot and grabbed her by her ponytail and tried to cut her hair.

She pulled away from Fuller, and as she did so he nearly struck her face with the knife. She tried to run away, but Fuller shoved her to the ground.

At one point, the woman said Fuller told her he would kill her and drag her into the streets before anyone knew what happened.

Eventually she was able to get out and get inside her vehicle, but Fuller chased her. He removed his knife again and slashed one of her tires. He also kicked the car and yelled at her before fleeing the scene.

Fuller was found by officers near the home and had several knives and firearms in his vehicle. He denied assaulting the woman and using any weapon against her.

He did admit to getting into an argument with her.

She did provide police with a history of statements made by Fuller that he would shoot and kill her.
