WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Police were called to the City Place New York Sports Club at around 12:37 p.m. Friday where the manager told officers he broke up a fight between two White Plains women.
A 20-year-old White Plains woman told officers she stopped by a drinking fountain after working out Friday, where she ran into Julie Brochero, 21, whose older sister used to date the woman's boyfriend.
After the two got into a verbal argument, police reports indicate that Brochero picked up a workout ball and launched it towards the White Plains woman's face, however, the woman blocked it with her arm.
Officers say Brochero then kicked the woman's right thigh, leaving her with a swollen, bruised upper leg.
Brochero was arrested and charged with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor.
Brochero's sister, whose ex-boyfriend is now dating the other young woman involved in the fight, disputed the charges while at police headquarters Monday.
