Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — A man charged for public peace disturbance in the Malaloa area was released on his own recognizance this past Monday, Christmas Eve, under the condition that he maintain peace at home with his wife, and remain a law abiding citizen.

Pulepule Anzac was arrested on the evening of Dec. 21 after police were notified that he was making loud noises in the neighborhood.

According to the criminal complaint, Anzac had gone to a party and came home drunk.

Intoxicated, he immediately demanded money from his wife so he can buy more beer. When his wife refused, the affidavit says Anzac "began to get rowdy.”

The couple got into a verbal argument and Anzac got out of control.

He allegedly threatened and — at the same time — damaged the inside of their home.

His wife called police for assistance and she allegedly told investigators that this isn't the first time this has happened, and she was scared that he might hurt her or her older sister.

Anzac, 32, was transported to the police station for questioning. On the way there, cops could detect a strong odor of alcohol emitting from his clothes and breath. When he was being booked, cops say that Anzac answered with slurred speech and his eyes were blood-shot red.

His pretrial conference is scheduled for January 30, 2019.
