A Des Moines woman has made a request for a no-contact order against a former boyfriend following a Monday night beating, police reported this morning.

Officers arrested Isac Benjamin Pettinger, 21, of 1221 E. 28th St., on charges of domestic abuse with injury, false imprisonment and obstruction of emergency communications.

Police said it all started with a video game. Here's the report:

Lacey Proctor, a 20-year-old massage therapy student, "reported that she was assaulted tonight (Monday) by her former live-in boyfriend, Isac Pettinger. Proctor said they had lived together at 1221 E. 28th St., until approximately a month ago when she moved out. Proctor said that tonight Pettinger invited her over to the house so that they could spend some time together.

"Proctor said she became frustrated with Pettinger as he would not stop playing video games. Proctor said she stood in front of Pettinger, blocking his view of the screen. At that point Pettinger's video game character died and he became very angry."

Police said he pushed her into a chair and straddled her, preventing her from getting up. He allegedly punched her in the side of the head with a closed fist. The victim yelled for him to get off but he refused.

She eventually escaped ran to a bathroom, police said. Pettinger reportedly followed her and attacked her again, beating her head against a wall. When she tried to get away, Pettinger allegedly said, 'You're not going anywhere."

Proctor reached for a cell phone and called 911. Police said Pettinger grabbed the phone and disconnected it. He called her a "cop-calling (expletive deleted)."

Police said Proctor grabbed her phone and finally was able to leave the house. Police dispatchers called her back and she met with officers at a nearby convenience store.

Pettinger was arrested at his residence shortly thereafter without incident. Police documented Proctor's injuries with photographs.

Pettinger was being held in the Polk County Jail this morning without bond.

Officers said Pettinger told them that Proctor "had actually assaulted him by chasing him through the house and hitting him."

no the pause button was invented to avoid losing your place during the beating

Okay, I know your old, but he was probably playing online. In which case you can't pause it.

Hope she gets some time, a person should never stand in front of the TV.

I heard the night of the Super Bowl is the night with the most arrests for domestic violence.

No, its Christmas Eve. Ask any cop or Paramedic you know. Christmas Eve is an Alcohol and depression fueled Domestic/Suicide-fest.

By comparison, St. Paddys Day and New Years Eve are cake shifts.
