BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ The winner of a Bridgeport state legislative race is facing domestic violence charges, nearly five months after being arrested in a hit-and-run accident.

Bridgeport police arrested Christina Ayala on a breach of peace charge Tuesday morning. Authorities told the Connecticut Post  Ayala slapped her boyfriend at their home Monday night. The Democrat takes office next month.

She was arraigned in Bridgeport Superior Court and released on a promise to appear. She also was ordered to stay away from her boyfriend. She didn’t comment outside court.

Ayala’s phone number isn’t listed and she couldn’t be reached Tuesday. A message was left with her lawyer.

Ayala has pleaded not guilty in the hit-and-run case. She has said she drove away after the minor accident in August because she was scared of a man who was yelling at her.
