Iowa City police arrested a local woman after she allegedly walked in on her live-in partner having sex with a man, and hit that man repeatedly with a baseball bat.

Amanda Stockstell, 36, 1446 Hotz Ave., was charged March 18 with assault while displaying or using a dangerous weapon.

According to a police complaint, Stockstell came home to find her live-in partner having intercourse with a man. The report said Stockstell then became angry and demanded the man leave the home.

When the man refused, Stockstell allegedly armed herself with a baseball bat and struck the man at least three times with a bat to get him to leave.

After allegedly assaulting the man, the report said Stockstell called 911 and reported the man was armed with a gun. Officers later determined the claim to be unfounded.

Assault while displaying or using a dangerous weapon is an aggressive misdemeanor, punishable by up to two years in prison and a maximum fine of $6,250.
