PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) A man was arrested early this morning after Pierre Police were told about a domestic argument that was happening–and that the disagreement possibly included a knife.  Pierre Police Captain Elton Blemaster says officers were called to the Pierre Inn and Suites around midnight and when they arrived, some people told the officers they heard a woman yelling for help.  Police had to force open a door as they responded to where the argument was occurring.  Blemaster says once inside, officers encountered 33-year-old Matthew Parson.  Blemaster says Parson had to be pepper sprayed by officers to be taken into custody.  He was arrested for Simple Assault (Domestic Violence) and Resisting Arrest.  A 39-year-old female victim was taken to St. Mary’s Healthcare Center by ambulance to be seen for non-life threatening injuries.  Parson was transported to the Hughes County Jail.
