Kennedy Rolston


An Idaho Falls woman was arrested Saturday after she admitted to beating a man.

The victim called police around 2 a.m. to report Kennedy Rolston, 23, had attacked him by punching him in the face multiple times, kicking him, scratching him and hitting him in the groin.

Rolston admitted to hitting the victim, but said it was in self-defense after he attacked her and hit her head against a dresser. A witness on scene, the victim’s father, told police he saw Rolston punch the victim multiple times.

The responding officer observed multiple injuries on the victim, including cuts on his cheek, shoulder, ear and neck. He also had bruising on his face.

Rolston did not have a bruise on her head where she said she was hit. She did have a bruise on her knee and wrist, but would not tell police how the injuries happened.

Rolston was charged with felony domestic battery, punishable with up to 10 years in prison. She was released from jail after posting a $5,000 bond. A no-contact order was issued between her and the victim.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Nov. 5 in the Bonneville County Courthouse.
