31-year-old Britt Johnson was jailed on May 5th after assaulting his girlfriend on Music Valley Drive. Police saw Johnson sleeping outside of the hotel room. He was startled when the officers woke him and appeared to be intoxicated, slurring his words, unsteady on his feet, and smelled of alcohol. He told police his wife had kicked him out of the hotel room. When officers entered the room to speak to Jennifer Rodriguez, she was crying and pointed at her face. Officers saw cuts on her face, objects in the room that were thrown around, and blood on the bed. She wouldn’t tell officers exactly what happened, but she said she was scared of Johnson and wanted him to leave. Officers asked Jennifer if Johnson put his hands on her, and she nodded her head yes but wouldn’t give further details. Due to the evidence on the scene and injuries to Jennifer’s face, police determined Johnson as the primary aggressor.
