When Officer Hollobaugh arrived on the scene, he approached Cheryl L. Dillon. Dillon stated she was “in an argument with (her sister) and that it was now over.” When Officer Hollobaugh questioned Dillon about the altercation, she said “I grabbed (the victim) by the face and slammed her against the car….(the victim) would not shut her (expletive) mouth, so yea, I slammed her by the face into the car,” the complaint states.
