A Nampa man is facing two felony charges after reportedly throwing a screwdriver at his girlfriend, which impaled her upper right thigh in early October, according to Nampa Police Department Capt. Curt Shankel.

The incident reportedly happened at a residence on the 1700 block of North Judith Avenue, and was reported via mail, Shankel said.

Jared Anthony Duren, 30, of Nampa was charged with two felony counts of domestic battery.

The victim in the case didn’t suffer life-threatening injuries and got medical attention for her injuries, Shakel said.

Officers arrested Duren on Oct. 4. Duren is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Oct. 20. He was found guilty on two misdemeanor child injury charges this summer and was sentenced to pay a $350 fine, according to court records.
