A 29-year-old Ephrata man was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence after allegedly throwing his cell phone at his wife while the couple was parked at a business on East Lake Sammamish Parkway March 18.
The wife sustained a cut and black eye during the alleged attack and was transported to Overlake Hospital.
The wife originally told police that the injury was self-inflicted, but then said the husband had done it when police said that they would have to have her committed for a mental health evaluation if she had harmed herself.
A third person was in the vehicle at the time but claimed he was asleep during the attack.
The witness also told police that one or more of those in the car were coming down off a methamphetamine high.
