DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A Deep Ellum bartender is up on assault charges after video surfaced showing him punching a woman in a parking lot.

Cell phone video obtained by NBC-5 shows a man believed to be Austin Shuffield slap a phone from the woman's hand.

She pushes him and then he slugs her five times with a closed fist.

Shuffield has been charged with assault causing bodily injury and with interfering with an emergency call because the victim was trying to call 911 at the time.  

He has also been fired from his job at a Deep Ellum night spot.
