OCEAN PARK — Those who like to keep abreast of crime news may be interested to know that a local woman has been busted for allegedly assaulting a man with her boobs.
Jennifer Rose Chipman, 46, the alleged wielder of womanly weaponry in the mammarian melee, was charged with fourth-degree assault in March, according to South District Court records.
‘Chaotic at best’
On the morning of Jan. 18, two Pacific County sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a disorderly person at a residence in Ocean Park. They allegedly found Chipman removing items from the home and arguing with a relative over some property. According to a probable cause statement, Chipman was “totally out of control of her emotions, anger and language.” Also present were the man’s brother and the man’s nephew.
“The scene was chaotic at best,” one deputy wrote in his report. He noted that both “petty accusations” and personal property “were being thrown about,” amidst much “shouting and arguing.”
The man said an argument over property suddenly escalated when he told Chipman she could not remove certain items from the home. Chipman allegedly “lowered her shoulder” and charged at the man’s stomach.
In a police statement, his brother said he was asked to be at the house during Chipman’s visit because “she is prone to violence.” He said he was downstairs when the argument erupted. In response to Chipman’s allegedly “enraged” behavior, the man remarked, “You’re putting on quite a show.” At that point, Chipman allegedly replied, “You want to see a show?” and started removing her shirt.
“When she started to pull off her bra, I turned away,” the man wrote. “She ran forward into me with her breasts and it caused my head to bounce off the wall.” The first man said he watched as Chipman “rubbed her breasts” on his brother. When his nephew turned his back to avoid seeing Chipman’s bared bazooms, she allegedly rubbed them on his back.
The man also claimed Chipman continued to be a real handful once they moved outside. She “exposed her breasts and genitals in the driveway and started to shake them, then proceeded to urinate in the driveway.”
Keep your hams to yourself
Chipman was not the only one to allegedly resort to violence. The brother said the confrontation escalated again when he laughed at Chipman for falling down while trying to move a dresser. According to his report, Chipman tried to hit him.
“I put up my hands to protect myself and finally told her if she did not stop, that I would knock her out,” he wrote. Chipman later disputed this version of events, saying that he also hit her in the chest.
The man who had originally been fighting with Chipman reportedly videotaped the incident.
The brother claimed the bodacious bounce against the wall left him with an aching head and neck. The deputies were not convinced he had been seriously hurt as a result of his allegedly bosomy battering.
“I observed no indication of injury…” one deputy wrote, adding that the victim of the suspected bazooka barrage did not ask to be examined by emergency medical responders.
“It was apparent to me each was doing and saying what they could to try and get the other one in trouble,” he said.
Still, breasts and genitals were not the only things (allegedly) shaken as a result of the boob-related brouhaha.
“I do not want to see any woman’s breasts unless it were my woman,” the alleged vixen’s alleged victim said in his report. “I have been celibate for over seven years, and I never in my life thought I would be sexually assaulted by a woman.”
Weaponized wazoos warrant
Chipman was due for a first appearance in South District Court on April 4. However, she did not show up, and is now the subject of a $2,500 warrant.
Fourth-degree assault is punishable by up to 364 days in jail, up to a $5,000 fine, or both. Chipman does not appear to have any prior convictions — for breast-brandishment or anything else — in Washington. However, the first man claimed she had racked up a reputation for violence.
Once, 17 years ago, he wrote in a statement, he laughed at Chipman, and she allegedly whacked him “with a very large magazine, about the size of a large phone book.”
While people may titter about the particulars of this case, men can and do become victims of serious intimate partner violence. If you or someone you love is being abused, you can reach Washington’s 24-hour domestic violence hotline by calling 1-800-799-SAFE. Calls are free and confidential.
