Blotter: Officer observes argument leading to woman’s arrest

Police said an argument broke out between two people in the 1400 block of Centre Place Drive shortly before 3 a.m. Friday.

An officer reported he was patrolling the parking lot of the apartment complex at 2:50 a.m. when he observed a man and woman, both 20 years old, arguing.

The argument was just verbal but became physical quickly, the officer reported. The woman began punching the man, according to the police report.

As the officer approached, the pair ran into a nearby apartment, but police then spoke with each of them.

The woman received a disorderly conduct charge of fighting in public and was brought to jail.
