Police in Sitka arrested a state prosecutor for assault after police were called to her home Friday, May 15, by neighbors reporting a domestic incident, according to court documents.
Amy Williams, 38, was charged with fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor, according to court documents. Police say she got into a physical confrontation with her boyfriend whom she was trying to eject from her home.
Williams was placed on administrative leave, and the Department of Law will ensure there is coverage in the Sitka District Attorney’s office, Assistant Attorney General Maria Bahr said in an email.
According to court documents, when police arrived at Williams’ home, her boyfriend was injured and bleeding from the ear. Williams’ boyfriend had been trying to retrieve his belongings from the home after being told to leave, according to court documents, and Williams had tried to physically remove him.
Both Williams and her boyfriend admitted to consuming alcohol throughout the evening, according to court documents, which state Williams provided a blood-alcohol content sample five hours after the incident and showed a reading of .037.
A jury trial has been scheduled for September.
