Dallas activist Dominique Alexander was indicted Monday on a felony assault charge in a domestic violence case involving his girlfriend, Dallas County court records show.
Alexander, 30, was arrested in April after his girlfriend, Keyaira D. Saunders, accused him of pushing, choking and head-butting her during several altercations, according to police records.
"It was a very scary thing to be able to speak out on the things that I have been experiencing," Saunders said during a press conference outside Dallas City Hall shortly after Alexander's arrest.
But on Nov. 1, one week before his indictment on a charge of continuous violence against the family, Saunders asked the grand jury to return a no bill.
"I want no part of this prosecution," she said. "I will not testify."
While Saunders previously reported to police that Alexander shoved her on April 10, breaking one of her toes, in the signed affidavit she said she sprained her toe when she stubbed it on a piece of furniture.
