PAULLINA—A 24-year-old Paullina man was arrested Saturday, Oct. 5, on a charge of domestic abuse assault impeding flow of air/blood.

The arrest of Devon Michael Morales stemmed from an argument he got into with his longtime girlfriend at about 10:40 p.m., according to the Paullina Police Department.

Morales allegedly threatened to slash the tires on the woman’s vehicle and poured out toiletry items the woman was trying to leave the house with.

When the woman started yelling at him, Morales admitted he put his hand over her mouth to try to quiet her, according to court documents.

A no contact order has been issued against Morales with the woman.
