Pair dispute how arm was broken

A 37-year-old Freeland woman was arrested for allegedly breaking her boyfriend’s arm in a jealous range, court documents allege.

Prosecutors charged Rachael Dandridge in Island County Superior Court May 2 with second-degree assault, a domestic violence charge.

Dandridge was accused of attacking her boyfriend in a Freeland home they share. The man claimed that he was watching a movie when she came home and started accusing him of cheating on her.

Dandridge hit the man in the face, kicked him and pushed him into a wall, according to a report by a deputy with the Island County Sheriff’s Office. The man’s arm was broken in the attack.

Dandridge, on the other hand, claimed that her boyfriend attacked her and she fended him off, forcing him outside. She said he may have broken his arm while banging on the door, the report states.

If convicted of the charge, Dandridge could face from three to nine months in jail under the standard sentencing range.
