After the assault took place, Heather Cullum was able to get the license plate number of Shelby’s vehicle before it drove out of sight.
Police used the information to identify Shelby as the owner of the Chevrolet. The vehicle was located about 3:45 a.m. in the parking lot of Armstrong Farms apartment complex near Veterans Parkway.
Officers reported waiting about 20 minutes before the vehicle left the parking lot, and a traffic stop was made.
Shelby was behind the wheel of the vehicle, at which time he told officers that he had been involved in a fight.
He was then taken to police headquarters, questioned about the incident and charged with battery. He would later post a $2,500 bond in January 2011.
