Westminster police responded to Kaptain's residence about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday for a report of an assault and met with the alleged victim, according to charging documents.

The woman told police she was arguing with Kaptain about his alcohol consumption when he spit in her face, then hit her with an open hand, according to the documents.

An officer noticed signs of intoxication when he spoke to Kaptain, who said he argued with the victim but refused to say anything further, according to the documents.

Kaptain received a three-year prison sentence with all but 10 weekends suspended in December after entering a plea agreement for assault and intoxication endangering the safety of others, according to court records.

In that incident, Kaptain threatened a woman with a butcher knife and hit her in the face, according to court records.

Judge J. Barry Hughes ordered Kaptain to continue substance abuse and abuser intervention treatment as a condition of his probation in the case and required drug testing, according to court records.
