A night out on the town on July 28 for a Santa Monica couple ended with the woman locked up at the Santa Monica Police Department after striking her boyfriend in the forehead with her heeled shoe.
At 10:51 p.m. officers of the Santa Monica Police Department went to the 100 block of Santa Monica Boulevard after they had received a report of a domestic disturbance incident.
When they arrived, the officers spoke with the couple standing near the parking lot of 129 Santa Monica Boulevard.
The man’s forehead was swollen and bleeding.
The woman, aged 42, attempted to walk away from the scene, but was detained by other officers who had arrived in order to assist.
The bleeding man told officers the woman was his girlfriend and that they were also living together in Santa Monica. He continued to explain they had attended a party earlier and had just returned to the 100 block of Santa Monica Boulevard.
He said he had told his girlfriend he needed to visit the restroom at Ye Olde Kings Head Pub and Restaurant. When he had performed his necessities in the restroom he returned to his girlfriend at which point all hell broke loose.
He told officers that his girlfriend became hysterical and demanded to know where he had been.
After a verbal argument had ensued the girlfriend removed her heeled shoe and struck the man in the forehead with it.
When the officers attempted to obtain the girlfriend’s side of the story she became argumentative.
She was also very drunk.
The officers arrested the woman, a Santa Monica resident, and charged her with inflicting corporal injury upon a spouse.
Her bail was set at $50,000.
