Waukee woman allegedly assaults man during argument


A Waukee woman was arrested early Sunday after allegedly assaulting a man during an argument.

Amy Jo Austin, 40, of 40 Bailey Circle, Waukee, was charged with first-offense domestic abuse assault-bodily injury or mental illness.

The incident occurred about 3:30 a.m. Sunday on Bailey Circle in Waukee, where officers of the Waukee Police Department responded to a report of a domestic disturbance.

According to court records, Austin “began to argue” with the victim and then allegedly “became physical with him,” leaving the victim with “scratches down his right bicep and a visible line around his neck from where his t-shirt had been pulled tight around it.”

Austin also allegedly “threw a Yeti tumbler at” the victim, according to court records. She “would not advise of how” the victim “received the injuries and then stopped providing information.”

Austin is held in the Dallas County Jail in advance of an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.

*A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
