Louisiana Woman Arrested In Santa Monica Hotel After Fight With Her Husband: Alert Police Blotter: Wife Gone Wild.

A 41-year-old female resident of Louisiana was arrested and charged with corporal injury upon a spouse in response to her husband’s accusations that she scratched and punched him during an alcohol-fueled fracas.

On Friday, April 3, at 12 am officers of the Santa Monica Police Department were called out to a hotel, located in the 1700 block of Ocean Ave., to investigate a report of domestic violence. When the officers arrived they heard the distinct sounds of a man and a woman screaming loudly at each other.

The officers then knocked on the door of the hotel room and the man and woman stopped screaming at each other and answered the door.

The officers spoke with the man who told them that they were a married couple and were on vacation from Louisiana.

He added that they had started the evening drinking alcoholic beverages in the hotel room and had then gone out to a nearby restaurant for dinner, where they had consumed more alcohol.

He added that they had begun to argue at the restaurant and that he had decided to leave the restaurant and return to the hotel room alone.

He added that when he had returned to the hotel room he had got into bed.

A short while later he said that his wife had entered the hotel room, jumped on the bed and started to punch him and scratch his face.

He told the officers that he had then informed his wife that he would be returning to Louisiana on a separate flight to her and that his wife had as a result of that announcement resumed her attacks.

He then said that he had attempted to call the police and that his wife had grabbed his cellphone and thrown it onto the ground.

Based upon the man’s injuries being consistent with his statements the officers arrested his wife. Bail was set at $50,000.
