By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A Paducah man was arrested Thursday afternoon on assault and other charges.

Paducah Police say they responded to the 1000 block of Tennessee Street and spoke to a female victim. She said during an argument with her boyfriend, 19-year-old Hunter Diel, he struck her several times with his fists. She also said as she and four other people drove away from Diel's home, he fired a handgun in their direction. 

Police say they obtained and executed a search warrant for the home, and allegedly found a magazine with ammunition for a .45 handgun, a receipt for a handgun, and some loose ammo. 

Police say they interviewed Diel and he admitted shooting at the vehicle and getting rid of the .380 handgun before police arrived. 

Diel was arrested on charges of fourth-degree assault (domestic violence), first-degree wanton endangerment, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and tampering with physical evidence. He was booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.

Diel is scheduled to make a court appearance on September 13.
