You can see the police report in full on the site of CWB Chicago.

The police report says that, on June 4, 2022, at around 10:09 p.m., the police officer was dispatched “to a domestic” at the Foxx home.

Kelley Foxx dialed 911 to “report a domestic with his wife,” the police report says. Dispatch said the “domestic was physical and there were no injuries.”

Two officers responded to the call and found both Kelley and Kimberly standing on the front step to the home. The officers separated the two to talk to them.

Kelley explained “that Kimberly got mad about something that was posted on Facebook that he did. Kimberly asked him to leave and he refused. Kimberly then became physical. He explained that Kimberly blocked him from leaving a bathroom. Kimberly grabbed his collar and threw down his video game controller. He tried to turn on the TV and Kimberly snatched the controller out of his hand and threw the controller.”

Kelley said she slapped him on his left cheek but the officer “did not observe any indicators to support his claim of being struck. There was no redness or swelling visible on his face.”

When the officer explained that he did not see any marks, Kelley responded that he “just wants to be left alone…he wanted to make sure someone understands what is happening here…she is being physically aggressive. He added that he just wanted it to stop.”

Kimberly told the officer they had an argument and she wanted him (Kelley) to leave. Kelley said: “She can’t come in my personal space and put her hands on me.”

Kimberley told police “she did put her hands on Kelley, but it was only to help guide him out of the house. She never slapped him.”

Asked if she felt safe, she said, “I mean he’s not crazy.”

She believed he called police only to hurt her. The police officer “did not see any evidence to support an arrest.”

Neither chose to leave the house; it was the first time that police had responded to a domestic call involving the couple.

Later, a member of Kimberly’s executive protection unit stopped at Flossmoor Police Department and said if they needed anything, they could contact him, the police report says.
