On Friday, Sept. 16, at 8:08 p.m. officers of the Santa Monica Police Department responded to 2012 Lincoln Boulevard (Common Ground, a facility that works toward the goal of preventing the spread of HIV) in order to investigate a report of vandalism.
When they arrived at the scene, the officers detained a female suspect and then spoke with the victim, a man.
The victim explained that he had been inside the location, and upon leaving, had been confronted by the sight of his estranged wife.
She had been standing over his motorcycle.
As he looked at her she proceeded to break off one of the rear view mirrors from the motorcycle, and followed this up by attempting to break the leather straps from the seat of the bike.
She also told him that she intended to hire a hit person to kill him.
The officers arrested this 38-year-old Santa Monica woman, and she was charged with criminal threats and vandalism.
Her bail was set at $52,500.
