An Auburn woman is facing charges of domestic battery… and aggravated battery of a police officer… after a physical altercation with her ex, a Springfield cop.
Police reports say the officer was on duty when he went to the Subway on South MacArthur Thursday, after his current girlfriend notified him that she was having trouble with his ex, Irma Anaya-Villa. The officer said Anaya-Villa struck or grabbed him several times, but he held his hands up in the air and did not touch her.
His account was corroborated by several eyewitnesses, one of whom shot cell phone video that was turned over to police. Other officers who went to the scene took Anaya-Villa into custody on possible felony charges.
