Santa Monica Man, 28, Arrested After Pushing Fiancé To Floor During Argument:

A 28-year-old Santa Monica man was arrested on Friday, Feb. 6, after pushing his fiancé to the floor in their apartment after an argument escalated.

Officers of the Santa Monica Police Department were called out to the 1200 block of 12th Street at 5:30 pm in order to investigate a report of domestic violence.

Upon arrival the officers spoke with the victim who told them that she had been involved in an argument with her fiancé.

The officers discovered that this couple had been in a “romantic” dating relationship for the past year and were planning on getting married so they could spend the rest of their lives together, presumably in a state of eternal bliss.

The victim continued to say that she had recently suspected her husband-to-be of cheating on her and had tracked his cell phone to a Starbucks location in Los Angeles.

She added that she had travelled to this Starbuck’s and had discovered her fiancé drinking coffee in the company of “another” woman.

She continued to explain to the officers that an argument had ensued culminating in her ordering her (soon to be ex) fiancé to return with her to their shared apartment and remove all of his belongings.

Once they had both arrived at the apartment the conflict escalated when the victim’s fiancé refused to leave.

The victim said that the suspect had taken some items including a Tag Heuer watch and the car keys, but when the victim attempted to retrieve these items she said that the suspect had pushed her down to the floor whereupon she sustained some cuts and scrapes to her hands.

The suspect had left the scene prior to the officers’ arrival but was later detained and arrested.

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