Mason City man accused of pushing, hitting and kicking a woman


MASON CITY - A Mason City man was arrested early Friday morning for shoving, hitting and kicking a woman.  

Zachery Allen Campisi, 24, was charged with misdemeanor assault causing bodily injury and possession of drug paraphernalia following an incident at his apartment on the 100 block of South Grover Avenue.

About 12:30 a.m. Friday, Campisi allegedly hit and kicked a woman after pushing her to the floor “after a disagreement.”

According to court documents, the woman had bruises on her right arm and leg that were still visible when Mason City police officers arrived about an hour later. She told officers that her nose had been bloodied during the incident and was still sore, court documents said.

Campisi allegedly had a glass pipe used to smoke marijuana and a grinder in his apartment when officers arrived.

Zachery did let officers inside his residence and officers smelled the odor of marijuana upon entry, court documents said. “When asked about the marijuana Zachery did give officers a glass pipe and a grinder that was in a storage tote.”

Campisi allegedly admitted to smoking marijuana about an hour prior to contact with officers. Court documents said he also admitted that the pipe and grinder were his.

Campisi was arrested and booked in Cerro Gordo County Jail. He was released on his own recognizance Friday following his initial court appearance.

He is scheduled to appear Sept. 6 in Cerro Gordo County District Court. A non-jury trial for the drug paraphernalia charge is scheduled for Feb. 15, 2019.  

Campisi will also appear in court for an operating while under the influence - first offense charge from May 13.

About 5:24 a.m., a Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s deputy stopped Campisi who allegedly failed a field sobriety test with a BAC of of 0.113 percent.

He will appear in court for a plea agreement hearing Aug. 28.
