Close or intimate relationships are not always calm and loving. A disagreement about even a very trivial matter can escalate into a heated exchange. Voices can be raised, and it may even turn into a physical tussle. When emotions get high and things get out of control the authorities often become involved. Once the police are on the scene to investigate if there is visible evidence of injury or one of the parties alleges the other was violent, there is probably going to be an arrest. The police officers often assume that the male is the offender or the one with an injury is the victim.
