Background on Carillo’s case

Carrillo and a family member got into an argument on Christmas Eve that quickly escalated when Carrillo grabbed the victim by the collar and struck the victim with an open hand and scratched them repeatedly, according to a police report.

The report stated that Carrillo admitted that she “had been in a bad mood all day” and that she had gotten into an argument with another family member when the victim intervened.

Carrillo was arrested and charged with domestic assault of a family member.
