The argument reportedly escalated to physical violence, with she claimed Mr. Saxour struck and shoved her on multiple occasions. During the tent fight Saxour took a bucket of urine and threw it on her. While she complained of pain, officers observed no visible bruising but did find a minor scrape on her wrist.
