Police showed up at a home where a Mother and Father were engaged in a physical fight over a custody dispute.
The police informed both parents that their disagreement would have to be resolved in court, which is another way of saying that law enforcement personnel can’t settle things between them.
But the pair were intent on their own alternative means of resolving their dispute.
Just minutes later, the police were summoned to a scene on the road where the same couple were now duking it out in the outdoors.
Both exhibited fresh injuries.
Police arrested both parents and charged them both with assault.
Mother had to post bail to get out of jail but not Father.
The whereabouts and care of the children over whom all this fighting was taking place did not come up at all.
