A Richmond-area man faces several charges after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend and an intervening neighbor, and then punching a deputy.

Around 1:25pm Tuesday, Fort Bend County deputies were dispatched to a home in the Pecan Grove subdivision after a neighbor spotted Billy Regenhard, 22, dragging his girlfriend into his vehicle, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office. When the neighbor tried to intervene, Regenhard allegedly attacked the neighbor.

Deputies who responded to the scene were forced to use a Taser to subdue Regenhard and arrest him. He initially was taken to the Fort Bend County Jail, but then was transported to Oak Bend Medical Center in Richmond for a checkup to determine if he was "fit for jail."

While there, Regenhard allegedly then punched a female deputy monitoring him and ran out of the emergency room, sparking a manhunt. However, soon after, officers spotted him near the hospital and he was arrested again.

The deputy whom Regenhard allegedly punched suffered a broken nose and chipped teeth.

Regenhard now is back in the Fort Bend County Jail and faces an assortment of charges, including assault, aggravated assault on a peace officer and escape. Regenhard will go before a judge Wednesday morning. He may face additional charges.
