    The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Aggravated Battery yesterday.

Evidence indicates the suspect struck the victim in the face causing damage to his jaw. Multiple witnesses provided statements and alcohol is a factor in this case. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
