On Thursday, March 8, at 12:18 a.m. officers were called to attend to a disturbance in the 800 block of Second Street.
When the officers arrived, they spoke with the victim, a man who told them what had happened.
Apparently, this man and his girlfriend had been out for dinner, and upon returning home they had decided to discuss some text messages.
This discussion became heated and the girlfriend decided to express her evident dislike of the text messages by throwing her cell phone at her boyfriend’s head, which apparently hurt.
The girlfriend then continued to assault her boyfriend until she was restrained and the police summoned.
The officers weighed the evidence, and after observing some minor injuries that had been sustained by the boyfriend, arrested this 50-year-old Los Angeles resident.
This woman was charged with domestic battery and put in a cell. Her bail was set at $20,000.
