The boyfriend of the Rev. Al Sharpton’s daughter was charged yesterday with misdemeanor assault for socking her in the mouth during an argument in Harlem, police sources said.
Latrelle Peeks, 23, allegedly punched Dominique Sharpton in the mouth Tuesday during an argument on W. 145th St.
Police sources said Peeks – who is 6-feet-7 and weighs 250 pounds – hit Sharpton, also 23, and also threw her out of a car while they were breaking up, sources said.
Dominique Sharpton reported the incident to police and was treated at Harlem Hospital for a cut inside her lip.
Yesterday, she told police she did not want Peeks arrested, but the NYPD’s policy is to charge domestic violence offenders even if the victim doesn’t cooperate.
Peeks’ mother, Jewel Gomez, defended her son, saying: “He said he did not hit her. They had a scuffle and one thing led to another. … I’m sure that if she had not been Sharpton’s daughter, this would had been a private matter.”
Dominique Sharpton and her mother, Kathy Jordan, go on trial next month for allegedly resisting arrest last October.
