According to the affidavit, Fleming and his brother John got into an argument and Matt struck John on the back of the head with such force that it caused John’s head to move forward.

The incident was caught on a security camera.

Fleming has a court appearance today.

Fleming ran against Curt Smith for Seat 4 for the County Commission. He did not win a single precinct.

In addition to this charge, Fleming has had a long history of driving incidents with the law. At last check, we counted 70 infractions dealing with his driving skills or lack thereof. At least one charge dealt with a failure to pay a fine.

All we can think of to say is that when your brother calls the cops on you and has you arrested, family Thanksgiving dinners are going to be interesting.
