Deputies were dispatched to a hotel for an assault. The woman working at the hotel said she had repeated problems with a guest so she went up to his room to tell him to stop and he went crazy and started choking her. One of the officers asked the woman what her relationship was with the man. She said that he was a guest and she was the employee. The police then went to the man’s room and asked him what happen. The man said that the woman and he have had an intimate relationship; he said that the woman got upset because she thought he had told her sister that they were intimate. Since she was upset, she came into the room without knocking, with a key she made from the front desk, and started scratching and swinging punches at him. He showed the police where she had scratched him and they agreed that the scratches appeared to be similar to what would be caused by fingernails. It was decided that the primary aggressor in the incident was the female working at the hotel. The woman was arrested for third degree assault and third degree criminal trespass.
