An Iowa City woman was charged Monday with second-offense domestic-abuse assault after an alleged altercation with her boyfriend.

According to a complaint by Iowa City police, Melissa Minarsich, 28, started the altercation after her boyfriend refused to have sex with her.

"I just want a piece of ass — is that too much to ask for?" Minarsich allegedly said.

According to the complaint, Minarsich then became violent, swinging at her boyfriend and ripping the storm door off of the house. The boyfriend told police he was not injured.

The complaint said Minarsich smelled strongly of alcohol and exhibited slurred speech upon contact with officers. She has one prior domestic-abuse assault conviction.

Second-offense domestic-abuse assault is an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison and a fine of $6,250.
