59-year-old Carmen Linette Kemp had a domestic disagreement with her girlfriend, Van Vanessa Lancaster, at Tarrywood Lane on December 11th. Officers arrived and spoke with Lancaster, who advised she and Kemp had been arguing. Kemp was visibly intoxicated and flustered when she talked to the police and began to spark an altercation with Lancaster when officers were speaking with her in the living room. They warned Kemp not to argue with Lancaster, but she refused and eventually tried to provoke her physically, hitting her on the arm. Officers observed this, deemed Kemp the primary aggressor, and placed her in custody for domestic assault.
