Authorities say 30-year-old David White was booked into the Hamilton County Jail on Tuesday and has been charged with three counts of assault.

It’s not known if he’s retained an attorney. White was taken into custody the same day that two sisters charged in the case turned themselves in.

Twenty-one-year-old Brittany Hopper and her 28-year-old sister, Kelsey, face the same assault charges.
