THURSDAY, NOV. 22
Man turns himself in after domestic assault
At about 11:15 a.m., a man came to the front counter of the police department to turn himself in for a domestic battery incident. He explained that at about 11 a.m. he got into a fight with his wife and head butted her on her face. The head butt caused her to have a bruise on her face. This prompted the subject to be ashamed for his actions and turn himself in to police. Officers responded to the residence to check on his wife’s welfare and confirmed his account of events. He was arrested on suspicion of domestic battery.
Partygoers attack police officers
Additionally, at about midnight, officers responded to a return call of a loud party at a home on the 32000 block of Elizabeth Way. Two officers responded to the call and contacted various subjects milling around the driveway and street. One of the intoxicated partygoers became belligerent and attacked one of the officers. Another partygoer attempted to pull the subject away from the officers, and then decided to take a fighting stance against the officers. The two subjects were loudly threatening the officers as about 15 additional partygoers began to emerge from the backyard area. The officers requested emergency backup as they struggled with the subjects, and the crowd was converging on them. Arriving officers assisted in taking the two subjects into custody and keeping the crowd away. Eventually the partygoers were dispersed.
