"Oh Mario y Maribel": A San Fernando Novella Breakup in need of Restraint

San Fernando City Councilman Mario "Tonto" Hernandez y San Fernando City "Sancha" Councilwoman Maribel De La Torre.
The City of San Fernando City Council in Happier Times.
What were the odds that the "personal relationship" between City of San Fernando City Councilman Mario "Tonto" Hernandez and City "Sancha" Councilwoman Maribel De La Torre would survive the political turmoil within its Bell size enclave in the San Fernando Valley? Slim? Little? Who cares?
But what was a bloggin political novella/comedy, took a serious turn this week when "Tonto" and "Sancha" both accuse each other of domestic violence.
The once hot, steamy political duo apparently under stress via a Recall attempt by San Fernando constituents, sought and were granted restraining orders from each other after a confrontation at the home of "Tonto". While they agree that a confrontation took place, the details ..... well.
From "Tonto" via the Daily News.

Hernandez wrote that he met De La Torre at his front door and she pushed him back inside, then slapped and punched him. She then went into his bedroom, threw his clothes on the floor and smashed a glass frame and a laptop computer on the floor, Hernandez wrote.He said De La Torre told him, "If I could kill you right now, I would. I f----- hate you," then choked him.

From "Sancha" via Daily News:

De La Torre said the two argued about the iPad, then she went into his room to look for it. Hernandez said in his own report that he reminded her the iPad was a birthday present.De La Torre said Hernandez then came in, slammed the door on her shoulder and pushed her down onto the bed. After she got up, Hernandez slammed her into the hardwood floor and she blacked out, she wrote. 

The damage to flesh and property.

In the police report, a copy of which Hernandez attached to his filing, Officer Jorge Bayardo wrote that Hernandez had injuries including redness and swelling on his cheek, scratches and redness on his throat and a swollen, bruised thumb. He declined to go to the hospital.Police said there were broken glass, a broken wood frame and a damaged laptop computer in Hernandez's bedroom.Hernandez asked in his filing for reimbursement of $400 for the damaged laptop, a request that was denied by the court. The court also denied his request to order her to attend a 52-week batterer intervention program. The court did grant his request to keep her away from his 11-year-old son.

"Sancha" uses the abusive man card on "Tonto".

In her statement, De La Torre said this wasn't the first time things turned violent. She wrote that Hernandez choked her and slammed her against a wall in December. De La Torre did not call police then or June 28. 

What will transpire in the next installment of  "Oh Mario y Maribel" via Mayor Brenda "The Other Woman" Esqueda?

Mayor Brenda Esqueda, who will preside over Tuesday's meeting, said she was unaware of the restraining order until a reporter called her Friday.After talking to the city attorney and acting police chief, she said she believed both Hernandez and De La Torre could attend the meeting without violating the court orders. But she did not know whether either will show up.

Thus, after a week which saw the termination of Acting Police Chief Gil Carrilllo and the latest sordid episode of  "Oh Mario y Maribel", a "total recall" of  "Tonto", "Sancha" and "The Other Woman" can't happen soon enough for San Fernando..
