Guam – Guam Firefighter Edward James Quitaro Cruz of Talafofo has been charged with Criminal Mischief and Disorderly Conduct in connection with an incident involving his girlfriend, Joanie La Ville Tomasiak.
According to the magistrates report, Cruz is accused of punching “the passenger door, hood and driver’s side door” of Tomasiak’s vehicle on Monday July 1st.
The next day, Tomasiak filed a complaint against him at the Agana Precinct. She told police that she left Cruz’s home following an argument and when he followed her to her car, she got it and locked the doors.
Police observed damage to Tomasiak’s car, and Cruz “admitted to punching the vehicle,” states the complaint.
Earlier, Guam Police Spokesman Lt. Art Paulino reported that the argument “concerned a possible infidelity in their relationship.” He said a followup investigation resulted in the arrest of the 50 year old Cruz who was booked and confined Saturday for Criminal Mischief and Family Violence.
Monday, the Attorney General dropped the Family Violence charge and substituted the misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct allegation.
