Iowa City school board member's abuse case dropped

Posted: Updated:

A domestic abuse charge against an Iowa City Community School Board member has been dismissed.

The arrest happened on September 6. According to the police report, a witness saw Tuyet Dorau attack a male victim while he was trying to stop her from hitting him, by holding her down. Dorau allegedly hit the person with a clothes hanger and kicked him in the stomach leaving scratches and redness to his abdomen.

According to our coverage partners at the Iowa City Press-Citizen, the male asked Monday that the charge against Dorau be dropped. 

When KWWL reached out to Dorau, she said she has no comment at this time. She plans on releasing a formal statement later this week.

The Associated Press and Iowa City Press-Citizen contributed to this report.
