A 22-year-old Simi Valley man was arrested Saturday, April 6 after hospitalizing his girlfriend when he head-butted her outside of a bar on Main Street.
At 1:40 am officers of the Santa Monica Police Department, who had been assigned to foot patrol on Main Street, were flagged down by a citizen who informed them that there was a fight between a man and a woman in progress outside the Circle Bar, located at 2936 Main Street.
The officers rushed to the location and began to question the two people who had been fighting.
The officers soon discovered that this pair was in a “romantic relationship.”
The officers learned that the “romantic” part of this relationship had evidently been suspended that evening after they discovered that this couple had been involved in an argument, and during the course of this dispute, the “boyfriend” had decided to head-butt the “girlfriend” in the face.
As a result of this assault the woman had sustained injuries that were sufficiently serious for her to require treatment in a local Emergency Room.
The “boyfriend” was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon (head), and domestic violence.
Bail was set at $30,000.
