A Colbert woman was arrested last week on family violence charges.

Victoria Joice Abreo Beam, 30, was charged with aggravated assault and battery family violence (first offense).

Deputy Kenneth Bowen was dispatched to a home on Hwy. 29 South regarding a domestic incident. He met with the victim and Beam, who were seated on a couch next to each other.

Another officer spoke with Beam while Bowen spoke with the victim, who told him that Beam owed him some money since he paid her child support for her. He said she agreed to clean his house that day in exchange for him knocking off some of the amount she owed him. He said she did nothing but dust the house before returning to her home nearby and he was unsatisfied with what she had done so he called her back to the house and they began arguing. At some point during the argument, she grabbed him around the neck and began to choke him. He said he told her multiple times that he could not breathe. She allegedly stated, “I’ll kill you, you m#@%#$ f(#@~@” while choking him.

He also said that she punched him on the mouth with a closed fist and scratched and pinched him on the left side of his chest and left arm. He said he was eventually able to push her away and the fight ended. He told Bowen that both parties had been drinking alcohol. He pointed out several wounds.

Beam told officers they were arguing about the cleaning when the victim mentioned something about her mother and her ex-husband and she “flipped” and jumped on top of him and grabbed him by his shirt.

She admitted to choking him but did not remember punching him.
