Santa Monica Man, 63, Arrested For Slapping Girlfriend In Front Of Good Samaritan: Alert Police Blotter: Bush Wacked.

A 63-year-old Santa Monica man was arrested Saturday, Jan. 5 after a man parking his car on Euclid Street witnessed him slap the woman he was dating and push her into some bushes.

At 3:24 p.m. officers of the Santa Monica Police Department went to the corner of Euclid Street and Pico Boulevard after receiving a report of a domestic violence incident that had just occurred.

When the officers arrived they spoke with the person who had called the report in.

The witness told them that he had been parking his vehicle in the 1900 block of Euclid Street when he aurally chanced upon a man and woman arguing as they walked along the sidewalk.

The reporting party then looked and saw the male half of this pair push the female half into the bushes and then follow that up with two strikes to the face with his open hand.

The woman then arose from the bushes and the pair of them simply walked off.

It was then that the reporting party had used his cellular telephone in order to summon the assistance of the Santa Monica Police Department so that they could investigate this apparent domestic violence incident.

After hearing this statement from the reporting party the officers went in search of the couple and discovered them at the corner of Euclid Street and Pearl Street.

The officers spoke with this couple and discovered that they were dating each other (dating is a form of courtship consisting of social activities done by two people with the aim of each assessing the other’s suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse.

While the term has several meanings, it usually refers to the act of meeting and engaging in some mutually agreed upon social activity in public, together, as a couple. It almost never includes acts of violence from one party upon another).

The officers noticed that the woman had redness on her face.

Based upon the witness statement and the redness to the victim’s face, the officers arrested this Santa Monica man and he was charged with domestic battery.

Bail was set at $20,000.
