51-year-old Yolanda Morrison told police that she and her husband, Cecil Morrison, argued Tuesday. She said that the argument became physical when she decided to pick up a hammer to damage his vehicle. Ultimately, she said that it was not worth it and put the hammer down. Cecil told police that when she picked the hammer up he stood between her and his vehicle. At that time, he felt threatened by the hammer, despite Yolanda having physical contact with him. He said that he wished to prosecute, so police placed Yolanda under arrest for domestic assault.
