CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – Authorities have charged a Campbell mayoral candidate with felonious assault Monday in connection with an August incident, according to Kevin Sferra of Campbell Police.
Nick Phillips has been charged with felonious assault and will turn himself in to Campbell Municipal Court Tuesday morning, Sferra said.
A visiting prosecutor from Youngstown will handle the case, since Campbell’s legal officials have excused themselves.
WKBN talked with Phillips in August, when he said he tried to intervene in a dispute inside his Sycamore Drive home. In the altercation, Philips said his daughter’s boyfriend shoved his wife and knocked her to the ground. The boyfriend filed a police report claiming he was assaulted by Phillips, breaking his jaw.
Phillips is running in the November election.
