Cops Arrest Santa Monica Woman For Biting Her Boyfriend; Bail Set At $50,000: Alert Police Blotter: It Backfired.

Santa Monica police arrested a 45-year-old Santa Monica woman on Thursday, March 14 after she called police, but was found to be the aggressor in an argument with her live-in boyfriend that escalated to her biting him.

At 1:10 am officers of the Santa Monica Police Department were called out to the 1100 block of 18th Street after they had received a report of a domestic violence incident.

When the officers arrived they contacted a man, whom the officers would later discover was the victim in this case.

The officers then spoke with a woman in the apartment.

This woman was the person who had reported the crime in the first place.

The woman told the officers that she had been dating the man (boyfriend) for about two years, and that he had moved in with her this past October.

She added that for the past several weeks they had been arguing about their relationship.

She lamented to the officers that she had the feeling that their relationship was deteriorating.

The woman the explained to the officers that just before she had made the call to the police they had been involved in a fresh argument (or the continuation of one long argument that was interspersed with brief periods of resigned civility?) and that the boyfriend had been yelling at her and calling her names.

She added that she had instructed him to calm down or she would, “call the cops.”

As the woman held the telephone in her hand the boyfriend attempted to take it from her and a physical altercation ensued.

During this fight the woman bit the boyfriend’s hand.

The officers observed injuries to the boyfriend, and based upon those injuries, and the statements of both parties, the officers arrested the woman, a resident of Santa Monica.

This woman was charged with domestic violence and bail was set at $50,000.
