Blotter: Man tells police another man struck him

A man told Denton police that when he dropped his daughter off in the 3000 block of Union Lake Road on Sunday for a custody exchange, that his ex-wife’s husband allegedly struck him on the back of the head and hit his car window.

The complainant said he did not feel pain from the blow but wanted to file a report because the other man put his hands on him in a threatening manner, police reports state.

When an officer spoke with the other man, he denied getting into a physical altercation, but he did say he followed the complainant to his car while trying to talk to him, reports state.
