Oxford, N.C. — Editor's Note: The charge against Jason Tingen was later dismissed because the witness was deemed unreliable. Jason Tingen's criminal record was later expunged, leaving no record of the charge.
An Oxford police officer and his father were charged Monday in connection with an assault last week.
Jason Keith Tingen, 37, and Douglas Keith Tingen, 55, both of Bullock, were each charged with assault inflicting serious bodily injury and were released after posting $10,000 bonds.
According to an incident report from the Granville County Sheriff's Office, the alleged assault occurred on Nov. 15 at Douglas Tingen's home following a report of trespassing. No other details were released.
The Oxford Police Department has placed Jason Tingen on paid suspension.
