PEOPLE v. BANOS
178 Cal.App.4th 483 (2009)
Court of Appeals of California, Second District, Division Eight.
October 19, 2009.
A. Prior Arrests of Defendant for Domestic Violence
1. June 7, 2003
When Burbank Police Officer Mark Armendariz responded to Cortez's apartment around 10:45 p.m., on June 7, 2003, Cortez was "excited" and "upset." Armendariz and Cortez spoke about defendant's physical assault on her earlier that day. Armendariz left to see if defendant was still in the vicinity, did not find him and then resumed other duties.
Minutes after Officer Armendariz left, Cortez again called 911. The admission into evidence of the recording of that telephone call is not challenged on appeal.1 Although the telephone call was to 911, most of the recorded material was an exchange between Cortez and defendant:
"CORTEZ: I'm in trouble.
"[DEFENDANT]: Do you want to speak to the police?
