Wint accused of assault

In December 2008, Wint's then-girlfriend told police about multiple instances of abuse by Wint during the month. The first was on December 12, when the two of them got into an argument in their car after leaving a restaurant. Wint's girlfriend says he turned the ignition off while she was driving on 295, and then did it again later. She attempted to call police, but Wint grabbed her phone and threw it out the window, according to a handwritten statement from her. Later that night, they returned home and Wint grabbed her and threw her into a wall, according to Wint's girlfriend.

On December 23, 2008, Wint's girlfriend said the two of them got into another argument. The girlfriend threatened to leave and call police, at which point Wint grabbed the phone, destroyed it and left for 20 minutes. When he returned, Wint's girlfriend wouldn't let him in. She eventually went outside to confront him, at which point Wint grabbed her and threw her on the ground, Wint's girlfriend told police.

On, December 24, 2008 Wint grabbed his girlfriend by the neck, threw her on the bed, slapped her, punched her in the legs and began hitting her in the legs with a belt, according to Wint's girlfriend.

Restraining orders issued against Wint

Wint has had two separate restraining orders issued against him. The first stems from an incident in 2005 after Wint allegedly made threats of violence against a woman inside her home while her child was present. Police were called to the scene and removed Wint from the home, but after they left Wint allegedly stood outside the home and continued to make threats.

The second restraining order came after a incident in 2006. A person noticed an unfamiliar vehicle in their driveway without tags and called police. Officers checked on the car and could not tell if it was a stolen vehicle. Later that evening, Wint allegedly returned to the home to pick up the vehicle. The homeowner then told Wint not to park that vehicle on their driveway, at which point Wint allegedly threatened the homeowner and their family.

The first restraining order was in effect for a year, while the second lasted for six months.

Wint's personal background

The 34-year-old moved from Guyana to the United States in 2000, the Associated Press reports. The Marine Corps confirms that Witt signed up for boot camp at Parris Island, South Carolina from July to September 2001 but dropped out. He never earned the title of Marine.
