A Perry woman was arrested early Saturday after allegedly assaulting a male in the home.
Yoana Arreola Adams, 31, of 1524 North St., Perry, was charged with first-offense domestic abuse assault-bodily injury or mental illness and interference with official acts-bodily injury.
The incident began shortly after midnight Saturday in the 1500 block of North Street in Perry, where officers of the Perry Police Department responded to a report of a domestic disturbance.
An officer made contact with the victim and “observed the male had an injury under his right eye and scratches to his leg,” according to court records.
The victim told the officer that Adams allegedly “scratched his leg and then dug her nails into his face just below his eye,” according to court records.
The officer made contact with Adams and perceived “a strong odor of ingested alcohol coming from her person, and she had slurred speech,” according to court records.
Adams allegedly “admitted to drinking alcohol and to being intoxicated,” and she “said she hit the male with a closed fist,” according to court records.
Adams was placed under arrest and transported to the offices of the Perry Police Department at 908 Willis Ave., where she allegedly became unruly and caused an officer to assist her “to the ground to obtain control” and to place her “back in double-locked handcuffs,” according to court records.
Adams is held in the Dallas County Jail in advance of an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.
Adams was convicted of disorderly conduct-fighting or violent behavior in 2008 in Dallas County District Court. She was twice convicted of disorderly conduct-fighting or violent behavior in 2018 in Dallas County District Court. She was convicted of interference with official acts-bodily injury in 2019 in Dallas County District Court.
