28-year-old Local Musician Daniel Alger had a domestic incident with his ex-girlfriend, Gabriela Marie Caverns, at his Church Street apartment on April 26th. Officers were dispatched to a Newsom Green residence, where they spoke with Caverns. Caverns stated she was moving out of her ex-boyfriend’s apartment and had not yet relocated all her belongings. She stated while she was there collecting her things, Alger came out of his room, holding an alcoholic beverage, and appeared intoxicated. Caverns said she and Alger talked in the living room about financial and relationship issues before yelling at each other because he wanted to finish their conversation, but she did not. Caverns said she tried to pass by him to leave, and he put his arms up in a swinging motion, causing her to step back into the living room. Caverns told Alger she was not having this conversation with him and to keep his hands to himself. Caverns then tried to run past him, and he grabbed the back of her neck, hair, and jacket before throwing her to the ground, causing her to land on an amp and “smash” her knee on the floor. She provided officers with a video that showed the argument before cutting off. As well as another video that starts with her on the ground crying next to the amp while Alger stands over her, talking about what happened. Alger was deemed the primary aggressor and then was taken into custody for domestic assault on April 29th.
