Two arrested after screaming match

Officers received a non-emergency welfare check request call from a woman on a cellphone at 2:26 p.m. May 9. Police heard the woman scream in the background "don't touch me."

Upon arrival at an apartment complex in the 300 block of Main Street, police could hear a 28-year-old woman screaming loudly. When the officers entered the apartment she was crying and screaming. Timothy Huppert, 44, Ellsworth, the woman's boyfriend, told police to leave. Upon speaking with the woman, she said the two had an argument that resulted in connecting foreheads because they had overslept and her child was hungry and crying. After connecting foreheads and screaming at each other, Catlin attempted to call the police, but Huppert allegedly swatted the phone out of her hand. She said she didn't want anything done, but just wanted Huppert out of the house for the day.

Huppert was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct for slapping the phone out of the woman's hand. He was transported to Pierce County Jail without incident.
