From the police report, as posted on Facebook:
Police received numerous calls in relation to a violent domestic, with reports of a woman screaming hysterically, a man yelling “I’m going to kill you, you're dead! Die Die!!”
Neighbors could also hear the sounds of furniture being tossed around the apartment. Several officers responded to the address and began banging on the door.
A man answered the door, out of breath and rather flushed with the following conversation:
Police: “Where’s your wife.”
Man: “Umm, I don’t have one.”
Police: “Where's your girlfriend.”
Man: “Umm I don’t have one.”
Police: “We had a report of a domestic and a women screaming, where is she?”
Man: “I don’t know what you’re talking about I live alone.”
Police: “Come on, mate, people clearly heard you yelling you were going to kill her and furniture getting thrown around the unit.”
At this point the male became very sheepish.
Police: “Come on, mate, what have you done to her.”
Man: “It was a spider.”
Man: “It was a spider, a really big one!!"
Police:”What about the women screaming?”
Man: “Yeah sorry that was me, I really really hate spiders.”
As it turns out the male was chasing a rather large spider around the unit with a can or spray. After a very long pause some laughter and a quick look in the unit to make sure there was no injured party (apart from the spider) the officers left.
