Sonia Montgomery, 45, was arrested Saturday after an Idaho Falls Police Department officer spoke to the victim.

The victim said Montgomery had been texting him all day while he was at work and that she was angry at him. He said that when he arrived home around 8:30 p.m., Montgomery reportedly began hitting him.

Police observed multiple injuries on the victim, including a cut on his lip and blood coming from his nose.

The responding officer wrote in the affidavit that they attempted to interview Montgomery but that she shouted over them and would not answer questions.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 1:30 pm. Aug. 18 in Bonneville County Court.
