The alleged domestic violence incident occurred early Sunday morning between Pelini and his wife. A call from Pelini’s daughter was placed to Boardman Police and she said her mother was “bleeding” and had a “black eye,” according to the station. Responding officers said the woman was “highly intoxicated” and said she and her husband had an argument and that he hit her.
Pelini was reportedly ordered to stay away from the alleged victim.
