North Carolina couple arrested in domestic violence incident

There is no doubt that people who live together can experience conflict, especially if those people are involved in a romantic relationship. Unfortunately, some people may ultimately feel that their life is at risk if the conflict becomes violent, prompting them to react in a way to protect themselves. Despite this, two people in North Carolina have recently been arrested and charged in what reports describe as a domestic violence incident.

The arrest involves a 25-year-old former North Carolina State tennis player, who is originally from another country, and her 22-year-old boyfriend. The incident that led to their arrest allegedly happened during the evening hours of a day in mid-November. It is unclear who requested police intervention or what caused the conflict between the pair.

However, police say that the woman attacked the man with a meat tenderizer. The man reportedly attempted to strangle the woman. Both were arrested; the woman is charged with assault with a deadly weapon while the man is facing a charge of assault by strangulation.

While many of the details regarding the incident are unclear, it seems possible that at least one of the pair thought his or her life was at risk and was simply attempting to protect him or herself. Unfortunately, they both now face criminal charges and must make multiple decisions that will likely impact their futures as a result of the alleged domestic violence incident. Because of the uncertainty that many people in North Carolina facing proceedings in the criminal justice system experience, they often want an experienced criminal defense attorney fighting by their side.
