BOCA RATON, FL ( — A Boca Raton woman was taken into custody by Boca police after they responded to a domestic dispute at the home she shares with her boyfriend on Ipswich Street.

Veronica Maupin, 36, was charged with one count of battery for allegedly scratching her live-in boyfriend. We don't know how serious the injury truly is or what led to the argument.

Police in Florida must make an arrest on battery calls in virtually every case.

Maupin was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on her own recognizance.
