According to the arrest warrant, Hagar reportedly got on his back and started choking the victim, who was not named, with a rope. She then allegedly sicced her pit bull on the victim, who suffered dog bites to his arm, face and body, KGET-TV reported.

Hagar is also accused of using a claw hammer to hit the victim’s body and face as well as a frying pan, court records show.

Deputies wrote in the arrest warrant that the victim’s arms were so badly injured that “the bone was protruding through the skin,” KGET-TV reported.

Hagar was arrested and charged with attempted murder, aggravated mayhem, torture, three counts of assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm causing great bodily injury, and inflicting corporal injury on spouse/cohabitant.
