Upon arrival, officers spoke with Finney, who stated she and White III argued over a fan, which sparked an argument. White III told officers that during the argument, Finney struck him in the face, leaving a small abrasion on his lip. White III said he pushed her off in self-defense, and an unidentified third party corroborated White III’s statement. While trying to detain Finney, she resisted, yelling, “I’m not getting in the car!” bracing her back against the door.
