Domestic disputes can range anywhere from a verbal spat to a physical altercation. However, sometimes these incidents can grow out of control, potentially leading to more serious allegations, perhaps especially if injuries are involved. A 29-year-old woman was recently arrested and accused of violent crimes after a fight allegedly broke out in Wisconsin.
The incident is said to have taken place around 3:30 p.m. on a recent Sunday. According to authorities, two women became involved in an argument over a man, which eventually became physical. The accused individual allegedly hit the other in the face repeatedly, allegedly causing her to suffer serious injuries that would require medical attention.
At some point, the other woman went into a house and grabbed a firearm, then proceeded to fire several shots into the air. The accused individual then left the scene, and was located by authorities later on and taken into custody. While the woman who fired the gun is apparently not facing any charges, the other could potentially be looking at battery charges in relation to the alleged incident, and would be facing serious consequences should a conviction be obtained.
Those accused of violent crimes such as assault and/or battery may wish to protect themselves from potentially devastating consequences, but the process can be challenging to navigate alone. When facing a similar circumstances, a person in Wisconsin could speak with a defense attorney for advise on the best course of action with which to proceed. An attorney can advise a client of the potential penalties he or she may face and subsequently assist in pursing the most favorable outcome possible during court proceedings.
