MONROVIA — A Monrovia woman is in custody for allegedly hitting a friend several times with a skillet during an argument.
The assault happened 10:36 p.m. Wednesday in the 900 block of West Colorado Boulevard.
Monrovia police said the woman was drunk and angry.
She got into a dispute with a male friend and struck him with an electric skillet, according to Lt. Jaime Alfaro.
He didn’t know what the two argued over.
The friend, a 47-year-old Monrovia man, ended up with lacerations, a broken finger and pain to his head. Alfaro said the man was taken to a hospital.
Officers arrested Tammy Kay Shinpaugh, 47, on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon (the skillet).
She was being held at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood in lieu of $30,000 bail.
Shinpaugh has a Monday court date at Pasadena Superior Court.
