Man arrested for domestic violence


Reports said a Summer Street man was arrested for domestic violence early today after he entered an ambulance where paramedics were trying to treat a woman who was found passed out in the middle of the street in the 1000 block of Hawthorne Avenue.

Gary Peoples, 59, is expected to be arraigned later today in municipal court.

Reports said the victim told police at the hospital that she was arguing with Peoples over a car when he punched her several times. She said she does not remember anything after the punches until she woke up in the ambulance, reports said.

Police were called by paramedics who were treating the victim after they told officers Peoples came inside the ambulance without permission. Police arrested Peoples after the woman woke up at the hospital and was questioned by officers, reports said.
