A family fight landed three Skiatook residents in jail Saturday. A mother, son and the son's girlfriend were all arrested for domestic assault and battery.

Skiatook Police say they were called to a home in the 300 block of East Pine at about 5 p.m. The front door was open, so they could hear yelling and fighting going on inside, according to an arrest report.

Troy Lynn Malzahn, 54, reportedly told police her son Roscoe Roper and his girlfriend Jessica Glaspie got into an argument about marijuana while on the front porch. Malzahn said during the argument, the power went out to the home and her son head-butted Glaspie.

"Troy then stated that Jessica picked up an oxygen bottle on the front porch and hit Roscoe in the side of the head with it," the arresting officer said.

Malzahn reportedly joined the argument by tackling Jessica Glaspie, 25, to the couch and punching her in the mouth, according to police.

"Troy stated that she had put up with Jessica's stuff long enough," the arrest report states.

Roscoe Roper, 27, told police he was outside on the front porch minding his own business when Glaspie hit him in the head with the oxygen bottle, but a witness at the residence confirmed that Roscoe head-butted his girlfriend.

Both women are being held on a $1,000 bond for domestic assault and battery, first offense.  Roper had some other outstanding charges including larceny from a retailer and uttering a forged instrument and two traffic offenses. He is being held on a $5,100 bond.
