You may have seen the video of Austin Shuffield hitting L'Daijohnique Lee on social media. The footage is from March. It shows Shuffield -- who is holding a gun -- knock Lee's phone out of her hand. She tries to retaliate, and he punches her five times, then kicks her phone away. 

Shuffield was indicted last month on four charges, including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. This month, he got hit with another charge. This one ... unrelated. 

Shuffield was arrested in Plano on Dec. 2 on a charge of DWI. His DA says he wasn't jailed and was released yesterday with new bonds and additional conditions.
