A Bellmead man was arrested on aggravated assault charges after he hit his ex-girlfriend on the head with a beer bottle, an arrest affidavit says.

According to the arrest affidavit, police were called to a Bellmead home on May 26 to a report of an assault. 

The victim got into a fight over a disabled vehicle with her ex-boyfriend, 58-year-old Dana Keith Richardson, who was also her roommate at the time.
