"Oh Mario y Maribel": The Charges after the Breakup

City of San Fernando City Councilwoman Maribel "Sancha" De La Torre.

The City of San Fernando Political Novella "Mario y Maribel" featuring former City Councilman Mario "Tonto" Hernandez and City Councilwoman Maribel "Sancha" De La Torre has garnered "further bookings".

But today's bookings by the San Fernando Police Department involving "Sancha" may spell the end of the sibling of former Assemblywoman and San Fernando politico Cindy Montanez's  political reign.

From the LA Times ........
San Fernando Councilwoman Maribel de la Torre was charged Friday with vandalism and battery of her former lover and council colleague Mario Hernandez during an acrimonious breakup last month.The Los Angeles County district attorney's office filed the two misdemeanor charges against the 41-year-old councilwoman in the June 28 incident, which Hernandez reported to San Fernando police. 

Now Sancha is going to have a rap sheet.

"Sancha's" episode of rage.....

Hernandez told police that De La Torre arrived at his residence June 28 shortly before 6 p.m. to retrieve an iPad she had given him for his birthday and pushed past him into the home, according to a police report. When he told her he did not have the iPad there, she punched him in the left cheek and slapped him in the face before “ransacking his bedroom,” smashing the glass of a picture frame and breaking his laptop by slamming it on the floor, according to his version of events in the police report.He told police she then grabbed him by the neck with both hands and began to squeeze his throat while yelling that she was going to kill him. A police officer reported finding the bedroom ransacked and saw swelling on Hernandez’s face, marks on his arms and scratches and redness around his throat.

Lucky for Tonto that Sancha was not Loreena

Lastly, some contrite words from Sancha.

In an email to The Times on July 6, De la Torre said: "Words cannot begin to express how saddened I am over the events of the past several days."She added, "It would be inappropriate to discuss this matter until any potential legal issues are resolved." 

...... until the next episode of "Oh Mario y Maribel".
