WACO (February 14, 2013)--A Waco man has bonded out of jail after he was arrested on family violence charges stemming from a domestic dispute during which he was shot in the head.
Danny Tyrone Robinson, 42, was released Tuesday after posting bonds totaling $9,000 on charges of interference with an emergency call family violence, injury to a child family violence and aggravated assault family violence.
Arrest warrants indicate Robinson was involved in a domestic dispute on Jan. 3 with a woman believed to be his girlfriend during which the woman picked up a handgun and shot him in the head in self-defense.
The woman was not charged.
Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said the incident happened just before 1 a.m. on Jan. 3 at a residence in the 2100 block of Dallas Street.
Officers were sent to the address after a caller reported a shooting.
The affidavit for the warrant says Robinson attacked a woman at the residence by slamming her head into a wall, slapping her in the face and punching her.
At one point the woman's children got involved in the fracas and were chased around the house during which one of the children was injured.
The woman was able to grab a .22 magnum caliber revolver and fired it at Robinson, striking him a glancing blow in the forehead.
The gunshot forced Robinson to stop the assault for long enough to allow the woman to run from the house to a neighbor's home where she called 911.
Robinson was taken to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center where he was treated and later released.
