A reported domestic disturbance at an apartment in the 2200 block of West 10th Avenue early Wednesday morning resulted in the arrest of two people who had allegedly fought with each other.
Angela Harris, 49, and Craig Shavers, 34, were taken into custody after police saw physical injuries to both of them, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing Thursday.
Detective Michael Roberts said in a probable cause affidavit that Shavers said Harris “bit his finger,” while Harris said Shavers “had strangled her and she bit his finger to make him stop.”
Kizer said Harris and Shavers both had prior convictions for misdemeanor domestic battery and because of that, they should be charged with second offense third-degree domestic battery, a felony.
Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth agreed, setting a $10,000 bond each for Harris and Shavers.
Bridgforth also ordered the two to have no contact with each other, and told them to come back to court May 9.
The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Harris and Shavers.
