Soon after she was placed in handcuffs, she stopped yelling and swearing. Police also found the man involved with the incident. He had scratches on his chest. He said he did hit the woman, but in self-defense. The woman told police they were having any argument, which turned into “rough sex.” She said that is why she was wearing only a tank top.
