First-year Republican Illinois State Senator Suzanne "Suzi" Schmidt was involved in her second domestic dispute call in just over a month at the Lake Villa home she shares with her husband Monday.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Lake County Sheriff's deputies arrived at the Schmidts' home in the 38500 block of Ardmore Lane about 6:30 p.m. Monday, after domestic battery was reported. Suzi's husband, Robert, reportedly told the deputies that his wife had hit him with a cell phone, bit his forearms and scratched him in the face. The senator told deputies that her husband had hit her to the ground and left a red mark on her left eye.

Authorities investigating the scene, however, did not make any arrests, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

No arrests were made or charges were filed in the Aug. 16 domestic incident at the Schmidts' residence either. At approximately 6 p.m. that night, the two reportedly engaged in a verbal argument. Further details of the incident have not been released.

Schmidt's legislative aide Lauren Fleming told the Tribune that the previous incident was a "personal matter."

Schmidt was the chairman of the Lake County Board from 2000 to 2010, when she ran for Senate in the 31st District, defeating Democrat Michael Bond for the seat.
