Iowa City police arrested a pregnant woman Sunday after she allegedly assaulted the father of her child while intoxicated.

Danielle Davis, 26, 2430 Muscatine Ave. Apt. 26, was charged Sunday with domestic-abuse assault without intent causing injury.

According to a police complaint, officers were dispatched to Davis’ residence at 5:17 a.m., after reports of a dispute between a male and female. Once officers arrived, the male allegedly stepped outside with visible abrasions to his forehead and cheek.

Male told police the abrasions occurred after he had called Davis a name and she allegedly hit him and pushed him off the bed. The male told police he then left the room, and Davis allegedly proceeded to barricade the door with her body.

The report said he attempted to get inside but gave up and had a cigarette. Davis then allegedly locked the door to the house, prompting the male to call police.

The complaint said both subjects admitted to drinking, and Davis told police she had several rum and cokes, a couple shots of liquor, and that she is approximately three months’ pregnant with their child.
