Utica, NY (WIBX) - Utica police say an early morning domestic dispute started with a tug of war over a blanket and ended with a chomp to the victim's hand. The incident led to the arrest of 21-year-old Pedro Bermudez, who according to police, violated an active order of protection against him, when he went to his ex-girlfriend's home around 12:30 this morning to retrieve the blanket.

  • Criminal Possession of a Weapon - a Misdemeanor
  • Criminal Contempt - 1st Degree Class E Felony
  • Harassment - a Violation

UPD says while being taken into custody the arresting officers found a switchblade on the suspect.
