Shaver lake, Mich.
— A man was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly punching his girlfriend in the face and then throwing her out of a window of a pickup truck, police said.
Shaver Lake Police Chief John Schulze said in a statement that officers responded to a call about a domestic violence incident at the apartment complex at 2201 East Michigan Avenue shortly after 3 a.m. on Wednesday.
Schulze did not give any other details about the alleged incident.
Officers arrived at the scene, where the victim was in the apartment with a man.
The victim told officers he believed the suspect had beaten his girlfriend and threw her out the window, Schulse said.
The victim told police the suspect then hit the victim in the head with a shovel, and he then fled the scene.
Schulles said the victim did not have any injuries, and that the suspect has a prior conviction for assault and battery on a police officer.
