Springfield man deserved scratching and biting, defense lawyer tells judge By Jack Flynn | jflynn@repub.com on October 21, 2015 at 8:30 AM, updated October 21, 2015 at 8:31 AM SPRINGFIELD – If Ashley Zarrillo did bite and scratch her boyfriend, she was more than provoked, her defense lawyer said Monday. As the couple were arguing, he slammed the door on her arm and wouldn't release it, attorney Randy Milou said during Zarrillo's arraignment on a domestic abuse charge in Springfield District Court. "Her arm was stuck – she was trying to get it out," said Milou, adding that his client, not her boyfriend, was the victim in the fight and a long-running "nightmare" involving the boyfriend's parents. In January, Zarrillo, 29, allowed her boyfriend of nine years to move into her Oakland Street apartment, and his family followed shortly after, Milou said. Despite Zarrillo's repeated requests, the family has not moved out, Milou said. "They keep saying they're moving, they're moving – but they never do," Milou said, adding that Zarrillo is seeking her own eviction to rid herself of her boyfriend's relatives. As for the boyfriend, he flunked a drug test earlier Monday and had his probation revoke – leaving Zarrillo alone with his relatives, Milou said. Judge William Boyle rejected a request for cash bail, and released Zarrillo on personal recognizance. "Thank you very much, your honor," she told the judge. http://www.masslive.com/news/index.ssf/2015/10/boyfriend_deserved_to_be_scrat.html
