Contractor hit with assault charge after video allegedly shows him striking female

An Arizona contractor’s infuriated outburst against an employee has led to an assault charge with a viral video appearing to back up the victim’s claims.

Brent Hospelhorn, 46, is the owner of BPH Construction LLP in Scottsdale, Arizona who recently had his contract for a project in Phoenix terminated after an alleged assault against Guadalupe Solano. The incident, said to have occurred Tuesday around 12:30 p.m. according to the Arizona Republic, was first seen in a video posted to TikTok by the victim.

One of the videos published on Solano’s account featured Hospelhorn raging over the damage that had reportedly been done to a cabinet that the victim had leaned on. The profanity-laced tirade reached its height when the contractor appeared to close in on Solano, slapping at her hand holding a cell phone recording the incident.

“Leave! Get the f*ck out of my building right now!” he could be heard shouting before physically lashing out.

“You f*cking b*tch,” the suspect continued before leaving the unit in the condominium.

Solano’s caption plastered over the video roughly translated to “No one can treat you like this, even if they’re the owner simply because the cabinet was scratched.”

Additional video shared by 12 News showed the angle as witnessed by the victim and included Hospelhorn turning his anger toward other employees.

“Don’t you ever f*cking question my a**, you understand me?” he could be heard shouting at another individual after stating he witnessed Solano leaning against the surface that had reportedly been marred.

Solano, a mother of three and electrician of seven years, spoke with 12 News and recounted the incident that she said escalated within seconds and included Hospelhorn allegedly pushing her. After she called 911, the victim said it took two hours before law enforcement arrived on the scene where they spoke with the suspect and cited him for misdemeanor assault.

Social media users’ comments led many to believe that the authorities were taking no action against the suspect, leading Phoenix Police to release a statement Wednesday that read, “The Phoenix Police Department is aware of the video circulating online which shows the assault of a woman on a job site in North Phoenix. There is an inaccurate narrative spreading which claims lack of action on our part as law enforcement. This is FALSE. One of our officers responded to the call, took a report, and arrested the suspect for assault. This suspect was cited in lieu of detention and the suspect is being recommended for charges.”

Additionally, Sgt. Robb Scherer spoke with the Republic and noted about the assault charge, “Citing him is not letting him go, he has a court cite to attend.”

The outlet explained the differences between misdemeanor and felony charges in Arizona were based on several factors that included the amount of force used, injuries incurred and whether a weapon had been used.

Hospelhorn is slated to appear in court on May 26.
