So You Think You Can Dance Winner Joshua Allen Faces 10 Years or More in Prison for Domestic Violence
Allen faces two felony counts of willfully injuring his girlfriend after a prior conviction and one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon
So You Think You Can Dance season 4 winner Joshua Allen is due to be arraigned on Friday in L.A Superior Court for domestic violence charges.
Allen, 27, faces two felony counts of willfully injuring his girlfriend after a prior conviction and one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon, a glass vase, according to the press release obtained by PEOPLE.
The dancer has also been charged with two misdemeanor counts of disobeying a domestic relations criminal protective order and one misdemeanor count each of simple battery and vandalism under $400.
Allen’s most recent incident report stems comes from June 19 when he allegedly attacked his girlfriend and chased her to a nearby coffee shop where she reportedly asked for help from strangers. He then allegedly threw a glass vase at a woman who was attempting to help his girlfriend as well as man who had tried to intervene, prosecutors said.
Allen then vandalized the coffee shop until other good Samaritans finally subdued him, prosecutors claimed.
On April 13, Allen is alleged to have assaulted and strangled the same woman, following another incident on January where he was convicted of one misdemeanor count of willfully injuring his girlfriend. After that incident, a criminal protective order was issued, which prohibited him from communicating with his girlfriend, but he disobeyed the protective order.
Prosecutors are asking for $270,000 bail and if Allen is convicted as charged, he faces a possible maximum sentence of more than 10 years in state prison.
The 2008 winner was set to appear in this season of SYTYCD but has pulled out as mentor. The dance competition show is currently in its 13th season.
