A LaPorte area man appeared in court Wednesday, charged with breaking into a home and punching a man who happened to be the husband of a woman having an affair with him, said police.
Williams Grubbs, 32, was arraigned Wednesday in LaPorte Circuit Court on charges of battery and resisting law enforcement.
LaPorte County Police said Grubbs on Monday broke down a door and went into the Mill Creek area residence finding the man in bed with his wife.
Grubbs reportedly told the man "she is with me now" before punching him in the face and throwing him into a wall.
After Grubbs fled, the woman told officers she began seeing the man after they exchanged text messages, police said.
