Courtney Vashun Alexander, 37 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he punched another man in the face during an argument at a motel on Martha Berry Blvd.

Reports said that the victim suffered a busted lip and other injuries that required stiches.

Police went on to state that while serving an arrest warrant on him, he refused to answer the door.  Deputies added that they were forced to enter the home by busting though the door.

Alexander is charged with battery, criminal trespass, obstruction and parole violation.
