BusinessInsider is reporting that Chahal allegedly kicked his girlfriend 117 times in half an hour. Chahal pleaded not guilty to 47 criminal charges and he posted a $1 million bail on Friday. One of those charges includes assault with a deadly weapon. That deadly weapon was allegedly used to smother the victim.
Chahal allegedly assaulted his girlfriend after finding out that she went to Las Vegas with another man. Prosecutors are saying that they have surveillance footage of the assault in his bedroom. Chahal’s lawyers are saying that the charges are “simply wrong” and the allegations are “overblown.”
It is worth noting that the woman asked voluntarily that the charges are dropped after meeting with the prosecution. She also showed photographic proof of an “unblemished complexion to SFPD authorities.”
