Zadora Punched, Scratched Family in Incident
Pia Zadora

LAS VEGAS -- Pia Zadora scratched and hit her husband, son and stepson early Saturday morning, leading to domestic violence charges against the singer-actress.

Zadora, 61, was charged Saturday with battery and coercion following a night of drinking and arguing at her home in the western valley.

Around 11 p.m. Friday, Zadora wanted her son to go to bed and her stepson to leave the house. When her 16-year-old son, Jordan, protested, Zadora, who had been drinking, grabbed a hose and sprayed the group. She also scratched and punched her husband, Metro Police detective Michael Jeffries, and her stepson, Michael Jeffries Jr.

Police responded to a domestic violence call made by Jordan at 3:45 a.m. Saturday, but no one at the house answered the doorbell or verbal requests to come out. Inside the home, Zadora wrestled the phone away from Jordan as he attempted to make another call, grabbing him from behind around his head, then grabbing his eyes and face.

Jordan attempted to answer the door for police, but the three others in the home prevented him. Police eventually entered the house through an unlocked back door. When they called to people in a back room, someone answered, "Come back here and get me!" Officers left the house at that point and set up a perimeter with a SWAT team.

Hours later, Zadora and Jordan came out of the house after she said she heard firecrackers and noticed her electricity was off, prompting a 911 call by Zadora.
