During the argument, the girlfriend became angry and started breaking the boyfriend’s personal belongings. The boyfriend left to call 911 and the girlfriend followed him outside. The girlfriend placed him in a headlock and cut off his air circulation for a few seconds, causing the boyfriend to believe he was going to die. The boyfriend freed himself and called the police. Police then arrived and arrested the girlfriend. She was booked into jail on second-degree domestic assault charges.

Netflix mix-up: At about 5:28 a.m. near the 28600 block of Military Road S., officers were dispatched to a possible suicidal subject. 911 dispatch received a call with a male voice yelling “give me the knife” numerous times. The call was an open line and dispatch did not make connection with the caller. Upon arrival, officers knocked on the door and announced police presence. A man exited the apartment and was placed in handcuffs. The apartment was cleared and a woman was also inside the apartment. Both residents reported they had been watching a horror movie on Netflix and the woman said she accidentally bumped her phone, resulting in the 911 call.

The two pit bulls were later found near 31300 block of 36th Ave SW and were transported to the Tacoma Humane Society. The dogs could not be identified and the owners were not located.
