Illegal in more ways than one

The complainant said she and her live-in boyfriend had an argument after he and his friend were drinking and his friend stayed too late. After the friend left, the argument continued and the complainant was standing by the front door when the boyfriend decided he was leaving. He grabbed the complainant by the shoulder and threw her out of the way, pushing her into a freestanding space heater. She suffered a cut/abrasion to her leg that is approximately 8 inches in length. The suspect was arrested in the area of Oakwood and Baldwin roads. He had a blood alcohol content of .08 percent. He admitted shoving her and she never touched him.
