A 22-year-old Dunwoody woman and her live-in 27-year-old boyfriend began to argue because she spilled milk.
The woman removed herself from the argument and took a shower, but her angry boyfriend grabbed the cat and threw the pet into the shower with her.
The woman ran out of the shower and into the living room. She was bending over the sofa when the man grabbed her from behind. He refused to let go, so she elbowed him. He slapped the back of her head in retaliation and the couple went outside to argue.
The woman went back into the house and locked the man out. The boyfriend banged and kicked at the door until he had to leave to go to work.
A 42-year-old Doraville woman called police after her husband, against whom she has a temporary protective order, came to her home and refused to leave when she told him to.
The officer read the protective order, which stated that the husband, who had been evicted from the residence, was to have no contact with the woman. The order gave her sole possession of the house and her car.
She told police when her estranged husband came to her home this time, he got angry and grabbed her by the neck, lifting her off the floor. The woman yelled at him to leave and he then grabbed her face to keep her from talking. The man grabbed her so hard, her upper lip was bleeding, which she showed to the officer.
The wife said her husband left shortly afterward but took her car keys before leaving. While talking to the victim, the offender called about five times. She said it sounded like he was on his way back to her house. The officer went to the end of the street and waited for him to return.
When the man came back to his wife's house, the officer made contact with him. The man said he did not know about the protective order and then changed his story and said he had already seen the judge about it.
The woman was unable to attend the hearing because her husband had taken her car keys. The suspect denied taking the car keys. The man was placed under arrest for aggravated stalking and simple battery.
The officer then searched the man's truck. Inside a tire sitting in the bed of his truck, the policeman found a set of keys to the woman's car. She verified they were her car keys.

The police arrived on the scene and the man was arrested for aggravated assault.
