A fight over beer or cigarettes ended with a Butler couple injured and behind bars.

Police arrested Mark A. Graham, 55, and Lorraine D. Kozub, 56, following the domestic dispute at their apartment on Spring Street.

Officers were called to the home for the altercation and found the defendants. Both appeared to be intoxicated.

Kozub told police that Graham grabbed her by arms and pulled out “chunks of her hair,” according to court documents.

Graham's account, documents said, was that Kozub hit him in the face.

He said the fight started over beer. She said the fight was about cigarettes.

Both defendants were arraigned on charges of simple assault and harassment, and were placed in the Butler County Prison on $5,000 bail each.
