Police were called to a condo at Chenal Woods about a fight. When they arrived, they found Arkansas Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson and his ex-girlfriend Julie McGee, 39, inside.
According to the police report, McGee alleges Hutchinson had "thrown her on the couch." Police say she showed a swollen lip and scratches on her wrists and redness on her arm.
Hutchinson alleges he had been hit on the side of the head by McGee with a small preserved alligator head. The police report states Hutchinson had a bleeding wound to the left side of his head. MEMS responded but he refused treatment.
