Famed pornography actress Tori Black and her fiancé were both arrested on charges of domestic violence late last month after an argument in the couple's Las Vegas hotel room allegedly got physical. Black, whose real name is Michelle Chapman, was in town for the AVN (Adult Video News) awards in which the actress was nominated for a past performance, though she did not win. Black admitted to local law enforcement agents that she had been drinking when she returned to the hotel room she was sharing with her fiancé, Lyndell Anderson, and their five-month-old baby. The couple began arguing over formula for the baby when Anderson allegedly called Black an unfit mother and the argument escalated. Black admitted punching her fiancé in the back of the head, then claimed that he shoved her into a wall. Video surveillance footage from the hotel's hallway confirmed her account. Both Anderson and Black were arrested for domestic battery.
