Synopsis: On 8/16/13 at 1800 hours, Mendocino County Sheriff Deputies were dispatched to the 44000 block of Fish Rock Road in Gualala, California for a report of a domestic dispute.

When Deputies arrived they learned the 32-year-old male victim returned home from work earlier in the evening to find his ex-girlfriend, Iuta Pittman, at his residence.

An argument ensued after the victim asked Pittman to leave the residence as a result of her being intoxicated.

This prompted Pittman to begin throwing various household items at the victim. Pittman then placed her hands around the victim's neck and then also struck him several times in the face with her hands.

The victim sustained minor injuries due to the physical assault.

Deputies subsequently located Pittman in Point Arena, California where she was arrested on charges of domestic violence battery and for committing a crime while being out on bail on an unrelated incident.

Pittman was transported to the Mendocino County Jail where she was to be held in lieu of $50,000.00 bail.
