She told police they were drinking and went outside to smoke, began arguing and he grabbed her by the neck with one hand and pressed her against the outside of the front door, choking her a little.

The woman said she tried to defend herself, swung her fi st at him while he pinned her against a door, then he threw her down three stairs to the porch, causing her to fall on a cement sidewalk, breaking her glasses.

Going into the residence, the woman said she told Vazquez she was calling police but he took her cell phone from her hands and threw it against a kitchen table, breaking it. The woman had knee abrasions she said were caused by being thrown down the steps.
