Report: Ex-girlfriend lodges abuse complaint against Mirkarimi*

Monday, January 23, 2012

imageThis won’t help. SF Weekly’s Erin Sherbert reports that a woman filed a police report yesterday claiming that Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi physically abused her while they were dating in 2007 when he was a San Francisco supervisor. The woman, whose name was redacted from the report, contends that on one occasion Mirkarimi “grabbed both her upper arms, shook her and pinned her against the wall.” An excerpt:

Fearing for her safety, the woman convinced Mirkarimi to let her go. After the incident, the woman said she discovered a bruise on her upper right arm.

The victim said the relationship ended in December 2008 when Mirkarimi confessed to her that he had been in another relationship with a woman from Venezuela at the same time he had been dating her.

Meanwhile: A judge today set Feb. 24 for Mirkarimi’s trial on domestic violence charges against his wife, Eliana Lopez, the former Venezuelan actress.

[+] In a blog post, the Chronicle’s Matier & Ross identify the ex-girlfriend as Christina Flores, a former cable access channel talk show host who has appeared on KOFY and KTVU and who now lives in Southern California.
