Couple charged in domestic dispute

A couple were charged late Friday night after a domestic dispute was reported on East College Avenue, State College police said.

Rhonda and Roger Bird were charged with simple assault, and were arraigned about 11:30 p.m. Friday where bail was set at $2,500 for each, Sgt. Todd Scholton said. They were then both released on their own recognizance, Scholton added.

Scholton said a verbal altercation about “pill use” turned physical when the couple began to bite and push each other.
