The affidavit said that when she told him to leave he said he owned the house and did not have to leave, breaking out the back door glass and entering the home.

The affidavit says the victim reported that when he entered the home she started throwing items at her and stood over her throwing punches at her as she sat in he wheel chair.

The victim said he did not actually hit her but threw his hands around her as if he would.
