A social media model accused of killing her boyfriend in Florida was once arrested in Las Vegas for allegedly throwing a glass at his head during an argument, according to an arrest report.

Courtney Clenney was booked into Clark County Detention Center in July last year on suspicion of domestic battery after an argument with Christian "Toby" Obumseli, per jail and court records.

Clenney is now facing a murder charge in Obumseli's death. A warrant for her arrest was issued out of Miami-Dade County after Obumseli was fatally stabbed this past April, and she was taken into custody in Hawaii.

In their report from the July 2021 incident, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police say officers were called to The Cosmopolitan for a report of a family disturbance.

A security officer told police they had Obumseli and Clenney in custody for "possible mutual domestic battery."

Obumseli told police the couple had come to Las Vegas to visit for a few days. He said they got into an argument and alleged Courtney threw a glass that barely missed his head.

Clenney admitted to throwing the glass and said she had thrown things at her boyfriend in the past, the report states. She told officers Obumseli did not hit her or hurt her in any way, and she was arrested on suspicion of domestic battery.

Court records indicate the Clark County District Attorney's office dropped the case against her in August.
