GREENCASTLE — A Greencastle man is in jail on felony charges after being accused of assaulting a woman during a domestic dispute on Aug. 22.

Michael D. Lake, 45, is in Franklin County Jail with bail set at $300,000 on charges of aggravated assault, strangulation and intimidation of a witness or victim, among others, according to court documents.

On Aug. 28, Greencastle police found a woman outside the police station who had visible injuries to her face, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The woman told police Lake had been arrested for public drunkenness and needed a ride home, but she refused to go get him. She came to the station to see if police would go with her while she moved out, because she was scared Lake might be at the residence, according to the affidavit.

Court documents for a separate case show Lake was charged with public drunkenness on Aug. 28.

While agreeing to go with the woman, police continued to ask about the visible injuries to her face.

According to the affidavit, the woman said the injuries occurred during an incident on Aug. 22 when Lake had been drinking and became agitated. The woman accused Lake of destroying her cell phone because he thought she was calling the police before he started punching her in the face.

The woman also alleged Lake tried to put a pillow case around her neck and had her in a headlock.

According to police, the woman said Lake had hit her in the past, but never like this.

Lake is charged with aggravated assault, intimidation of a witness or victim, terroristic threats, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, criminal mischief and strangulation. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 10 with Magisterial District Judge Jody Eyer.
