  • David Ryan March was charged with felony aggravated battery, misdemeanor resisting arrest, and two misdemeanor counts of contempt.

Things got out of control at a house party in Eagle Monday night, when 22-year old David Ryan March punched another party-goer hard enough to break bones in the victim's face.

KTVB reports that the party took place on the 1800 block of East Stonybrook Court 900 block of West Stafford Drive. The victim said he and March didn't know each other, but that didn't stop March from allegedly punching him in the head without warning while he was talking to a woman on the back patio. 

The victim told police he was so stunned by the attack that he couldn't defend himself as March continued to pummel him, breaking his nose and other bones in his face.

The victim told police that his friend was able to get him away from the attack and take him to his car. He called the police after he got to his home. Paramedics took him to the hospital, where he was treated for a fractured jaw, nose and eye socket.

When Eagle Police and Ada County Sheriff's deputies arrived on the scene of the incident, the suspect had already shut himself inside the house and refused to come out. Officers said they found blood on the back patio and a trail of blood leading to the front of the house. The stand-off with March lasted three hours, until March finally surrendered at 7 a.m., when a K-9 police dog started barking.

March was charged with felony aggravated battery and resisting arrest. His appearance in court is set for Tuesday afternoon.
