According to the statement of probable cause, Moreno appeared to be “highly intoxicated” when police made contact with him and the alleged victim told police Moreno had consumed a large amount of alcoholic beverages.

A verbal altercation between the two led to Moreno becoming “highly aggressive,” according to the statement, and the victim attempted to leave. Moreno then allegedly retrieved a knife from the kitchen and and, apparently believing the victim had taken his phone, allegedly grabbed the victim by the wrist and used the knife to make lacerations to the victim’s right hand, according to the statement. The victim was able to take the knife and run of the room, according to the statement.
