Man faces charges in teen’s assault




Greenwood police used a Taser while arresting a man after they said he pushed a teenage girl into a wall twice during an argument.

Neil Joseph Beckett, 42, was arrested on two charges of battery, one charge of resisting an officer and one charge of invasion of privacy.
