Aron Ralston, Whose Story Inspired 127 Hours, Arrested for Domestic Violence

Originally posted 12/09/2013 10:15AM

Aron Ralston, who gained widespread attention when he cut off his forearm to free himself after becoming trapped by a dislodged boulder in a Utah canyon, has been arrested in Denver over allegations of domestic violence after a fight with his girlfriend, police say.

Ralston and Vita Shannon, both 38, were each booked Sunday on charges of assault and "wrongs to minors."

Police documents allege Shannon struck Ralston twice in the back of the head with her fists and that he shoved her as she was leaving her apartment.

The wrongs-to-minors charge is used when children are present during an incident but not necessarily hurt. Police documents say the couple's 8-week-old child was present at the time of the altercation but apparently suffered no harm.
