[image-1]COVER WARS: After midnight, police dealt with a couple in their 20s who live together on Dorsey Street. The woman, 24, said they were in bed when her boyfriend took the blanket from her. She said they argued and her boyfriend grabbed her arm, causing a scratch, and pushed her to the floor. She said she hit her boyfriend's head only after he pushed her to the floor.

The boyfriend's side: He said his girlfriend struck his head with her fist and scratched his neck with her fingernails. He said he pushed her to the floor to prevent her from attacking him any more.

They both had scratches, the officer noted. Both the boyfriend and girlfriend went to jail on battery charges. (The Blotter Diva recommends: Get two blankets, avoid jail.)
