A 26-year-old Burnside Drive woman is in custody for aggravated assault (family violence) charges after she allegedly punched and bit her wife, according to Columbus police.
Officers were dispatched to the woman's 2300 block Burnside Drive home at about 8:50 a.m. Thursday in reference to a dispute, according to report.
There, an officer met with the suspect, Alice Cook-Ellis, who said that she hadn't called police, that police were no longer needed and that everything was now "OK" following an earlier verbal dispute.
