Well I don't think this is really gonna damage Darvin's reputation as a good citizen. I read that Darvin had a scar on the back of his head from the incident, probably means he was blindsided and she caught him off guard. So it doesn't seem like he did anything to (physically) hurt her, she was probably drunk and a petty dispute got out of hand.
BTW, I thought Ham's mother was mayor of Saginaw...so isn't Darvin from Saginaw? I guess what you mean is local Michigan son, not local Detroit boy.
