A McMinn County man is facing charges after a local dentist said he was assaulted.

Police say 67-year-old George Lasher has been charged with aggravated assault after being told he couldn't pay a $15 co-pay with a check. He walked out without paying, then Dr. Charles Pesce followed him to his car.

That's when police say Lasher punched Pesce in the face, then hit him with his vehicle before driving away.

Lasher has been released from the McMinn County Jail after posting a $10,000 bond.
