An 18-year-old Geneva woman has been charged with two counts of domestic battery after she reportedly punched her step-father in the face when he tried to give her a ride home.
Geneva police arrested Jordan Matzen-Campize of Geneva on two charges of domestic battery and one charge of underage consumption of alcohol following an incident between 9:45 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. Aug. 27, Geneva police reports said.
According to the synopsis sheet, officers responded to a report of a disturbance in the 1500 block of Eagle Brook Drive and while enroute stopped in the 1300 block of Fargo Boulevard, where police offers saw Matzen-Campize and the victim involved in an argument.
The victim told police he received a call that his step-daughter was drinking at a residence in the 1500 block of Eagle Brook Drive and had come to give Matzen-Campize a ride home. The man said Matzen-Campize was angry that he was there and a “verbal argument ensued,” reports said.
As the man was escorting Matzen-Campize to the car, she punched him in the face, causing his glasses to break and a laceration on the left side of his nose under his right eye. Matzen-Campize admitted to police that she punched her step-father because she was angry.
