A Middletown couple was arrested this week after police say an argument between the pair that started at a Rockfall bar escalated into violence.
Around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, Middletown police were called to a home on Jefferson Avenue. When they arrived, officers found 44 year old Michael Koba suffering from scratches and with blood on his face.
During their investigation police learned that Koba and 42 year old Tracy Jenkins had been drinking at the Kosciuszko Club, better known as the "K" Club, on Main Street in Rockfall earlier that evening.
According to police, the couple began arguing when Koba said he did not approve of Jenkins socializing with male members of the club.
Shortly after leaving the bar, Jenkins slapped Koba in the face, police said. That's when, according to police, Koba stopped the car in the Ace Hardware on South Main Street in Middletown and punched Jenkins in the face. He also grabbed her hair as she attempted to leave, police said.
Eventually, both were arrested for disorderly conduct.
Police say the couple was heavily intoxicated at the time of their arrests.
