A white North Carolina man was arrested for punching a black girl in an incident captured on video.
David Steven Bell was charged Saturday night with assault on a female under the age of 12 and two counts of assault on a female after an altercation outside the Asheville Mall, reported the Citizen Times.
The 51-year-old Bell, who is 6 feet 5 inches tall and 250 pounds, is shown in the video shouting at a group of girls to “break it up,” and some of the girls shout back at him.
“Who is he?” one girl asks.
Bell walks toward the girls, who back off, but then one girl shoves the man from behind.
The girl then walks toward Bell, who shoves her backwards into a pole, and then she charges at the man — who punches her in the face.
She falls to the ground and the other girls scatter before the video ends.
An off-duty police officer arrested Bell, who teaches piano lessons at his Black Mountain home.
The girl declined medical treatment after the incident.
Russia likely listened to Trump when he used unsecured phone to call Giuliani: security officials
Russia likely learned of President Donald Trump’s Ukraine dealings months before they were exposed by a whistleblower report, because he used unsecured phone lines to speak with his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, current and former officials told The Washington Post.
This article first appeared in Salon.
Phone records released in the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report this week showed that Giuliani made multiple calls to a blocked number listed as “-1.” Though Trump is not identified by name in the records, investigators believe the number belongs to Trump, and administration officials confirmed that Trump spoke with Giuliani on unsecured lines.

Maddow destroys ‘bad faith’ complaints about impeachment from Republican Trump supporters
The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Friday blasted "bad faith" arguments from Republicans about the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
Maddow recounted the process complaints by Republicans -- each of which has disappeared.
"After going through all of that, they now have unveiled a new objection as to why President Trump cannot actually be subject to this impeachment proceeding, a new noble stand they're taking for fairness and the American way -- they have rolled it out with our friends at the Fox News channel," Maddow said.
She played a clip of former GOP Speaker Newt Gingrich on Fox News.
