Forbes then fled the scene before police arrived. He was then arrested on Tuesday morning.

Last February, Forbes was taken into police custody on suspicion of assault with bodily injury, which is considered a misdemeanor. Forbes was believed to be in a relationship with the woman whom police said he struck when a verbal argument turned physical.
