Domestic disturbance splits couple
Thursday afternoon an officer arrived at 1925 Cassville Road, Lot 2, to investigate a domestic disturbance. The complainant, a neighbor, called after hearing an argument between the victim and offender. The offender stated that the argument was an accusation from his girlfriend of five years in regards to his fidelity. As the argument increased he stated that he had "had enough" and would take his half of the belongings and leave. At this comment, the offender claimed that the girlfriend pushed him to the floor and began hitting him with a cooking pan. He said that he threw the cell phone across the room. When speaking to the victim, another story was discovered. She stated that when she arrived at their shared residence the offender was asleep and she woke him up verbally. She stated that the argument was in regards to his inability to help her around the residence, and her comments made him angry, thus beginning the argument. She reinforced her boyfriend's previous comment in regards to his action of throwing the cell phone. The phone was observed to be broken, but neither party had marks in the areas they specified to have been injured.
