A married couple from Weston was charged Wednesday with breach of peace after getting into an altercation on Partrick Rd.
According to police, an officer was traveling eastbound at about 9:40pm when he saw a silver Jeep Wrangler stopped in the travel portion of the roadway.
Upon approaching the vehicle the officer found Lauren Meren-Kaufman sitting in the front passenger's seat.
Meren-Kaufman, 50, said she had gotten into a fight with her 55-yr-old husband, Monty Kaufman, and that he had taken the keys to the vehicle and was walking to their home two miles away, police said.
The officer noticed blood on Meren-Kaufman's ring finger and blood on the driver's side door but she refused medical attention, police said.
Other officials found Kaufman walking along Newtown Turnpike near Wilton Rd. according to the report. The report stated that Kaufman said he and his wife had gotten into an argument and that she had hit him in the face, grabbed his cell phone and threw it out the window.
Police said Kaufman admitted to biting her left hand to try to get her to let go of his cell phone. Both went to court yesterday.
