COTTONWOOD -- A Cottonwood couple was arrested Tuesday evening when an argument got physical. They brawled over their daughter using a calculator to cheat on a school test.
The husband returned to the apartment to get his belongings and officers met the couple to understand the fight.
According to police reports, he raised his fist at his 38-year-old wife saying he was going to hit her, but she punched first and the fight was on. The husband reportedly hit the woman several times and threw her against the wall, until neighbors interrupted the fight.
The wife received two lumps to the head, one that was bleeding. The husband received a scratch to his head, a black eye and scratch on his neck.
He was arrested and charged with assault per domestic violence, fighting and disorderly conduct-language. She was cited for the last two offenses.
