GENEVA – A Geneva woman was charged with domestic battery after allegedly throwing a 20-ounce Yeti tumbler at her boyfriend, injuring his head, according to police reports.

Melissa M. Dahlman, 33, of the 2700 block of Miller Road, was charged Sept. 6 with domestic battery causing bodily harm and domestic battery making physical contact, both misdemeanors, according to reports.

The Yeti tumbler struck the back of his head causing a laceration two to three inches long requiring stitches, reports stated.

Police were called to the home shortly after 11 p.m. in response to a domestic battery in progress, reports stated.

Dahlman and her boyfriend were arguing about their relationship, which escalated to Dahlman allegedly throwing the Yeti tumbler at him, reports stated.

Yeti makes stainless steel insulated tumblers, mugs, water bottles and coolers, among other items, according to its website, www.yeti.com. According to the website, the 20-ounce tumbler weighs 12.6 ounces.

Police Cmdr. Brian Maduzia stated in an email that the Yeti tumbler was Seafoam in color.

According to court records, Dahlman was released on a personal recognizance bond. Kane County Associate Judge Alice Tracy ordered Dahlman to have no contact with the victim.

Her next court date is scheduled for Sept. 23.
