Officers in the vicinity of Police Headquarters on Somerville Ave. reacted last week to what sounded to them like a brawl taking place nearby.
Officers located two females who were reportedly engaged in a physical altercation. The women were ordered to cease their fighting, and eventually calmed down after several warnings.
One of the officers had reportedly observed one of the women, Danielle Fiore, 23, strike the other woman with both hands.
Fiore was holding a plastic water bottle, and marks on the other woman’s skin appeared to be consistent with wounds attributable to that type of object.
Although both women claimed that they were just having an argument, Fiore was placed under arrest for assault and battery.
