MEMPHIS, Tenn. — An assault over a small amount of money landed a Memphis man behind bars. Michael Hines is facing robbery charges for allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend along Elvis Presley Boulevard.

The victim told police she was walking on Elvis Presley Boulevard near Kerr around 10 p.m. when her ex-boyfriend, Hines, pulled over and attacked her.

She says Hines told her to give him the $5 in her hand. When she refused, he hit her several times in the face and tried to push her into traffic.

The victim says that's when she dropped the money and took off.

No one was at the home that's listed as Hines' last known address. Police say he was in a vehicle with a man and a woman when he assaulted his ex-girlfriend.

So far he's the only one who has been arrested.
