Just hours after proposing to his girlfriend, Victorine Taboh, on new year's eve Stephen Mujerm allegedly knocked her unconcious with a steering wheel lock. Victorine was taken to hospital and has since been released.
The incident apparently started when Mujerm's fiancee and another passenger complained about his driving. He stopped the car, they got out and an argument ensued. As it escalated Mujerm smashed the windows and assaulted his fiancee.
New York state police have charged the 40-year-old with simple assault, aggravated assault, reckless endangering and driving while under the influence of alcohol.
