Upon arrival, officers made contact with Jacquilyne Allen and Gacoby Nightingale. Both alleged that a physical assault occurred. However, officers could not determine a primary aggressor due to the pair’s conflicting stories. Nightingale alleged that Allen had punched and kicked him. Allen, however, alleged that Nightingale had thrown her down the back door stairs. Allen had bruises on her legs, and Nightingale had no injuries. While on the scene, officers noticed a bag of marijuana sitting on a table near the couch. Other officers noticed a glass bowl and a rolling tray in the living room.
