Police said two men fighting over a woman last November led to one of the men suffering cuts to the head and chipped teeth.

Christopher Foti, of Marietta, was charged with aggravated battery and aggravated assault.

Cpl. Jessica Van said officers “responded to a ‘lovers’ quarrel’” after 2 a.m. Nov. 25 on Simmons Street, where all of the people involved knew each other.

“Two guys were fighting over one female. Foti used a handgun to strike the victim with blunt force during a physical altercation,” Van wrote in an email.

Van said arrest warrants were issued for Foti, though police did not clarify why months passed before Foti was arrested.

According to the warrants, Foti allegedly pointed the gun at the man, “holding the gun to his head and striking him with the gun causing injury and placing him in fear of death.”

The aggravated battery warrant alleges Foti struck the man “in the head and mouth,” which led to cuts on his head and chipping teeth.

Foti was booked Tuesday, Feb. 26, into the Hall County Jail. Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth said Foti was transported from Cobb County.

No information on an attorney was available with Magistrate Court officials Thursday.
