Domestic Dispute Turns Dangerous in Moxee

Authorities say alcohol or drugs may have been involved in a domestic violence incident in rural Moxee yesterday.

It happened around 5:30PM on the 100 block of Hi Valley View road.

A 27 year old woman told police she was assaulted by her partner.  She tried to flee in a motorhome, but her boyfriend entered the RV and assaulted her.  That caused her to strike nearby items with the vehicle.

Yakima County Sheriff's Deputies attempted to make contact with the man who had locked himself in the garage, but he declined to do so.  Less lethal options were put in place and negotiations with the suspect eventually helped bring him out, where he was put into custody.
