A Mount Vernon woman called to report a physical domestic violence incident in the 300 block of 34th Street. She claimed a man was acting aggressively and had pushed her to the ground. She said he had not hit her. She said she ripped the man’s shirt trying to keep him back, and the officer documented redness on her face. She said she had no injuries to her hands. Officers spoke to the man, who said she had grabbed his shirt and ripped it unprovoked, and witnesses corroborated that account. One witness said the man was trying to lock things up because she had been “tearing things up.” He said she had come in a little while ago, grabbed his shirt and threw him to the ground. She allegedly kept coming back to confront them, escalating the situation by putting her hands on them. The witness said she had hit him twice on the left side of his face. The man was agitated with officers and kept yelling to get the woman out of there. Officers ultimately transported her to Skagit County jail, citing her for fourth-degree assault (domestic violence) and confirming a warrant.
