…writes a student on her RMP page, and I guess it’s true.

A creative writing professor at Drake University seems to have beaten up her boyfriend, and is under arrest for “domestic assault, first-degree burglary, criminal mischief and obstruction of emergency communication.”

[Anzalone] began yelling and threw a Yankee Candle at Peterson, which struck him at the base of his head. Peterson eventually went to Mercy Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.

Anzalone allegedly followed Peterson through his house and tore a picture off of his wall and threw it down the bedroom hallway, according to the police report.

She then took his cell phone as he was trying to dial 911. Before she left, Anzalone hurled a glass vase at a double-pane window, shattering both panes, the police report said.

Peterson called police from a neighbor’s house. When police arrived, they went to Anzalone’s home and called Peterson’s phone. A phone rang on the bookshelf that showed the officer’s phone number in the caller ID, police reported.

When officers asked why Peterson’s phone was in her possession, Anzalone said that Peterson must have left the phone there the last time he visited.

    Not just any candle, but a Yankee Candle. I hear they’re the candle of choice for this purpose.

  2. Margaret Soltan Says:

    I noted that important detail too, Polish Peter.

    I am thinking that Prof. Anzalone would be a natural to take charge of the really rough stuff for Lisa Chavez’s dominatrix company at the University of New Mexico.
