Woman looking for more Valentine's affection booked for domestic abuse
BATON ROUGE - Deputies arrested a woman Sunday morning after she was accused of hitting her boyfriend in the head with a mug because she wanted him to “show her more affection on Valentine’s Day.”
24-year-old Allison Lopez was booked on charges of aggravated battery and domestic abuse battery after she was taken into custody by EBRSO deputies at around 11 Sunday morning.
Sheriff’s deputies said they were dispatched to an apartment complex on Coy Avenue after they received 911 hangup call. When they arrived at the scene, they said they encountered Lopez who was stumbling around and smelled strongly of alcohol.
While interviewing Lopez, she said her boyfriend, with whom she was living, had battered her. When deputies made contact with her boyfriend to get his side of the story, they found that he was bleeding from a large knot in the front of his head. The boyfriend told deputies that Lopez hit him in the head with a mug because he was drinking and having fun elsewhere in the apartment complex when she wanted him to show her more affection on Valentine’s Day.
Deputies said they also spoke with a second victim who was sleeping on the couch in the apartment Lopez lives in when the intoxicated woman struck him in the head with a mug also.
When deputies used an interpreter to ask Lopez about the alleged mug attacks, she said they were all in the apartment drinking, doing drugs and having a good time when an argument started. She would not admit to striking the victims with the mug.
