Veronica Cervantez was arrested by Maricopa Police Jan. 26 for domestic violence assault.
According to a MPD probable cause statement, Cervantez was involved in a verbal dispute with her boyfriend about 4:15 p.m. on North Cielo Lane. The dispute was over Cervantez “going out the night before” and him “not knowing what she was up to.”
It eventually turned physical, according to the police report.
“During the argument, property was broken,” the probable cause statement reads. “It is unclear at this point if it was accidental or on purpose due to conflicting statement.”
The boyfriend told police he pushed Cervantez away as she was throwing things at him. During the argument, the man said Cervantez “hit him in the head with the fan in the bedroom,” according to the police report.
The police officer noted in their report the man had a “bump in the back of his head the size of a quarter and a red laceration on the top portion of his forehead.”
Cervantez denied hitting him with the fan and denied he had even pushed her, the report states. She only acknowledged that the two were in a verbal argument.
At 4:40 p.m. officers placed Cervantez under arrest.
“I have probable cause to believe the assault took place from the injuries,” the officer wrote, adding, “and statements made by him.”
Cervantez was booked into the Pinal County Jail.
